Title: City/Town Names that are one-of-a-kind
Post by: webny99 on January 14, 2019, 12:01:00 PM
The opposite thread to the ambiguous city/town name thread.

What are some city/town names that occur once, and only once - no doubles anywhere on the planet?
So even if you mentioned said city/town to a stranger, they could look it up and know exactly what you were talking about.

Skaneateles, NY
Irondequoit, NY
Canandaigua, NY

I believe everything else in my area is either generic, recurring, or named after someone or something else.

I wouldn't really count those since Reading and Andover are so common.
But the rest definitely qualify!

I would have thought that my hometown of Beattyville was the only one in the world. But years ago, I found a Beattyville shown in the Rand McNally atlas in Quebec. It hasn't been shown in years. Apparently it was an old logging town that no longer exists.

Normal is a word, so there's no way it can only refer to the city.
Herrin: one exists in France, and it's also a last name.
Winnetka: Neighborhood in Los Angeles.

1. There's only one incorporated "Normal" around.
2. Herrin in France is more like a township than a town, but I'll grant you that.
3. Neighborhoods don't count.  These are at the municipal level if I read the OP correctly.

Anything place name derived from Native American words stands a good chance of being unique.

For example, I think about all the "wau's" here in Wisconsin.
Waukesha
Wautoma
Wausau
Wausaukee
Waunakee
Waubesa
Waupun

One isn't going to find those in other places.

Is there another Green Bay in existence?  (I am aware of an 'Appleton, MN', though.)

Other larger city names in Wisconsin that exist in other states include Oshkosh (NE), Madison (several), Watertown (several), Fond du Lac (MN).
OTOH, Milwaukee, Stevens Point, Eau Claire, Racine, Kenosha, Janesville, Beloit, Marinette, Menasha, Neenah, Manitowoc, Sheboygan, De Pere, and Ashwaubenon are unique.  (Yes, there is a 'Milwaukie, OR' and a 'Cheboygan, MI', but their spellings are different).

Some of them have been mentioned here already.

For some others from those threads, which I've visited:

Dildo and South Dildo, Newfoundland (NL also has a Dildo Run, but that's just a waterway in a different part of the province)
Asbestos, Quebec
Swastika, Ontario (but there is an unincorporated community in New York also named Swastika)

Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan might also be a unique city name, as might Saskatoon.

Maybe also Heart's Content and Heart's Desire, both near each other in Newfoundland and on the same peninsula as Dildo and South Dildo.

I remember seeing Judy Collins on TV once, and she was talking about her early days.  At one point, having mentioned Tatamagouche and another town with a similarly strange-sounding name, she stopped in the middle of her thought and said something like— You know, those town's names sound completely normal in Nova Scotia, but they sound really funny out here in Manitoba.

There's a Miami (mi-ami-uh) in Oklahoma and the Miami River Valley representing a good deal of south central Ohio along the Miami River.

Though Florida also has many Seminole, Miccosukee, and Creek place names...doubtful there's another Tallahassee, Okeechobee, or Weeki Wachee somewhere else in the world - though not impossible - in the way things can be Anglicized.

My very own hometown, Huesca. I still have to find another. Actually, pick a random village in Aragon, Spain and chances it's the only place in the world with that name are very high. Although most of them are also last names, these are derived from the places, not the other way round as it mostly happens in the USA.

However, I can shot down Moran (https://www.google.es/maps/@42.2829964,-0.7560288,3a,19.1y,327.03h,89.17t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1suN1R7pAtJNDuUsPS80uuyg!2e0!7i13312!8i6656) Junction in the Grand Teton NP, WY from this thread.

Interesting fact about data: If you gather the names of all cities/towns in the country or in the world, almost exactly half of names will be unique.

Half of names, not half of cities. For example, if the list has 25000 places and 3000 unique names, then there will be 1500 unique names and 1500 names with more than one entry from the other 23500 places.

This is true for other data sets, as it is a mathematical property.

The number qualifying for this thread is lower than half, though; some unique town names are also people's names, words that can be found in a dictionary, etc.

Like many states, Maine has a fair amount of town names derived from the local Native tribes, usually named for nearby water or geological features. To name a few, we have...

Skowhegan
Passadumkeag
Kenduskeag
Millinocket (and East Millinocket)
Macwahoc
Damariscotta
Allagash
Wiscasset
Meddybemps (my favorite)

When I started working for my railroad, we had a depot agent job in Gibsland. In the depot, I had access to the KCS's system-wide computer system called MCS. An option it had was a nation-wide station master list of every city, town, community (incorporated or not), and railhead (siding, no town necessary). It also gave the zip code of all of these communities. I would type in a community name and see how unique of a name it was.

I typed in my downtown's name in one day. I found out there are 3 places named "Simsboro" in all of North America...AR, TX, & LA. After looking on GMSV, I discovered that my Simsboro is the biggest of the three. The one in AR is unincorporated on AR highway 50 southwest of Memphis & has place signs. The one in TX is located on an old branch line of the Rock Island RR. It doesn't have place signs on the roads, and you wouldn't even know you were in a named community.

I wish I still had access to MCS. That was a fun system to play with.

I am sure it's good bet Milwaukee suburbs like Muskego, Mukwonago, Pewaukee, Menomonie Falls and Mequon are unique. Most likely Cudahy too as it was named after Patrick Cudahy. I am also sure there isn't another South Milwaukee since the only other Milwaukees that exist are tiny unincorporated areas.

Coalinga, California is unique.  The name apparently originated as a shortening of the rail siding name “Coaling Station A.”  I’m fairly certain Firebaugh is unique to California as well.  It is named after a guy who operated a ferry on the San Joaquin River and toll road over Pacheco Pass.

This thread is pretty much going to be a bunch of indigenous names.

The largest U.S. cities with indigenous names (that were not significantly Anglicized/rendered in other European languages) are Seattle, Milwaukee, Albuquerque, Miami, Oklahoma City, and Tucson.

There's a Miami (mi-ami-uh) in Oklahoma and the Miami River Valley representing a good deal of south central Ohio along the Miami River.

Though Florida also has many Seminole, Miccosukee, and Creek place names...doubtful there's another Tallahassee, Okeechobee, or Weeki Wachee somewhere else in the world - though not impossible - in the way things can be Anglicized.

I was surprised that there's multiple places called "Big Tussle" in the US, figuring Alabama had that one to herself.

Close but no cigar: there's a Tullahassee, OK.

Keep in mind that even indigenous names can repeat, because the indigenous residents had a tendency to get kicked off their land and moved to Oklahoma, where they reused names from home for features that reminded them of the originals.

Oregon South Coast unique names: Port Orford, which to those who are more familiar with Port Orchard WA, gets confused with.  Coquille was originally on US 101 until the bypass was built in 1961 to tie Coos Bay and Bandon directly.  Pronounced as koh-queel by locals, the ones not from here say koh-quill. 

Powers sounds like a plebian name but it is the only city of Powers I could find with a web search.  Their high school is called the Cruisers, which is about timber cruising, not car cruising or naval warships.  Myrtle Point also sounds like something which should be common but once again, the name surprises by being unique.  Myrtlewood is a tree which grows here.  If you go to their football stadium, a gorgeous myrtlewood tree is just outside the east endzone.  Their team name is ordinary though.  They are the Bobcats.

Coos Bay is the name of the bay here.  After an election to consolidate the adjacent cities of North Bend (Bulldogs) and Marshfield (Pirates) failed in 1943, Marshfield went ahead with the name change that was part of the consolidation measure, so they became the city of Coos Bay.  There are no other cities of Coos Bay but strangely enough, there is another Coos County.  It is in New Hampshire and has half the population of Oregon's Coos County.  Here is a short blurb about it:


Coös County, frequently spelled Coos County, is a county in the U.S. state of New Hampshire. As of the 2010 census, the population was 33,055, the least of any New Hampshire county. The estimated population as of 2017 is 31,634. en.wikipedia.org
County Seat: Lancaster
Population: 31,634

By the way, Coquille is the county seat for Oregon's Coos County while Coos Bay is the city with the largest population, a bit over 16K currently.

Curry County's county seat also has an unique name which one would think would be found elsewhere.  Gold Beach is on US 101 at the mouth of the Rogue River.  The drive from Brookings in the south to Port Orford in the north has Gold Beach at the midway point.  You can see the Pacific Ocean for almost the entire mileage.

Names of our cities which show up elsewhere: Lakeside (various), Bandon (Ireland), Brookings (South Dakota).

Oregon is so full of unique city names.  I will leave room for other Oregonians here on the forum to post those from their areas.

Plus there's plenty of repeated names that have no connection due to the rather limited forms of Anglicization afforded in the 19th century. "Sauk" comes up in several locations despite having no connection between native language families.

Newport News, VA there maybe Newports in other places, but none with News in the end.

Dozens of places named Newport in the U.S., Canada and Europe.  I couldn't find anywhere else that have a dual name with News.

Not really sure how the city got the name --

No one knows for sure where Newport News got its name, but "Newportes Newes" first appears in the Virginia Company records in 1619, making it one of the oldest place names in the New World.  The most widely accepted folktale is that our city is the namesake of Captain Christopher Newport, commander of Susan Constant, which was the flagship of the three-ship English fleet that landed on Jamestown Island in 1607.  He made several voyages to Newport News in the early days of the Jamestown Colony, bringing "good news" of supplies and settlers.

In Texas, there are some names that seem unusual but I could see being used elsewhere, such as Mobeetie and Tacubaya.  Then there are names that don't even seem to fit together as words.  One is Darrouzett, although the town was named after someone.  Another is Lazbuddie.  This one was named after two people, so is more likely to be unique.  Also in the compound name category is Iraan, which is (almost) a combination of Ira and Ann, but I wouldn't be surprised to hear of another one.

A short word that seems like it could be unique is Toyah, an American Indian word for "flowing water."  Nearby is Toyahvale, which suggests "flowing water valley."  These are both in the area of Balmorrhea, which has a state park with a beautiful swimming pool.  It's 25 feet deep, absolutely clear, is over an acre in size, and holds 3.5 million gallons of water.  It's fed by a spring that produces 15 million gallons of water per day.  It's the reason the towns in this desert area have water names.  Balmorrhea (pronounced bal-morray) is also a contender.

Of the places I mentioned, Darrouzett, Iraan, Toyah, and Balmorrhea are incorportated.  The two I like best for this purpose are Lazbuddie, named after D. Luther (Laz) Green and Andrew (Buddie) Sherley, and Balmorrhea, which I just found out "is an amalgamation of Balcom, Morrow, and Rhea, the surnames of its founders" (quoth Wickerpaedia).  That explains the short "a" sound at the beginning and the "ray" at the end.  I suspect these amalgamatia may be a good source of names for this list because they're more likely to be unique.
