You gotta love Minnesota - even with all its quirks. Ha!

I recently came across a list of cities all across the state I love and got a good laugh when I realized how many strange city names there are.

Some of them are funny, others are laugh-inducing and some are just not that creative. Take a list at my 12 favorites below:

  1. Nowthen
  2. Starbuck
  3. Fertile
  4. Rollingstone
  5. Fifty Lakes
  6. Hackensack
  7. Minnesota City
  8. Tintah
  9. Sleepy Eye
  10. Norwood Young America
  11. Manhattan Beach
  12. Saint Bonifacius

First of all, it's not right to call a city Manhattan Beach. That sounds like it should be somewhere along the west coast. That's not to say we don't have beaches but this just sounds more like a California thing.

Minnesota City isn't that creative of a name and Fertile is just a little odd. Fifty Lakes seems odd considering we have more than 10,000! I can't knock any town name that reminds me of coffee, right?

In all seriousness, these town names gave me a good chuckle. I love you, Minnesota! Weird town names and all. I mean, where else can you say a dog was mayor?!?!
