There is a reason behind almost every city name, some cities are named after an important river, mountain or natural place nearby, some other are named after important events or that took place there, or even the names of the first citizen of the town.
Reading the names of the cities featured in this list just one question came up to my mind: why? Why in the world would somebody name a place “Embarrass”? I’m sure there’s a rational reason for it, but I couldn’t help but enjoy these bizarre city names.
