The 5 Silliest City Names In Texas
What's in a name? A name defines things, whether it's a person, place or thing. And strong names can leave an impression upon the person hearing it for the very first time. So can weaker names. The greatest state in the Union has a lot of cool city names. Some you could name a child after, some that sound cool but not for a person's name--and some that are just downright goofy. And it's the goofy ones that stand out in your mind years later when you recall that road trip you took that one time. We went thru the list of all the towns in the Lonestar state and these are OUR top 5 silliest town names in Texas. See if you agree:
5. FROGNOT TEXAS
The science teacher didn't want frogs brought to school and banned them from the premises-so they named the town after his wishes.
4. LAZBUDDIE TEXAS
It got its name by combining the nicknames of two people who lived there; it's not named after someone's last friend.
3. DIME BOX TEXAS
Sounds like a place you could score some illegal substances. But no, it's just a little town with an odd name.
2. BUG TUSSLE TEXAS
Word is that there was a swarm of some kind of bug that ruined a church service in town so they named the town after a bug fight.
1. NOODLE TEXAS
Noodle. Seriously. Perhaps there's a whole lot of thinking (or 'noodling') going on there...
And those are our top 5. Comment below and tell us if we missed one that YOU think should have been in the top 5.
