Top 120 Cities in the World with Funny Names

Top 120 funniest city names

Learn more about the most amusing city names around the world

Our customers usually need to find the cheapest rates on cars, trucks, vans, or RVs for  big cities all across the globe. Sometimes they're looking to hire a car for a vacation to a remote beach or a mountain top resort. But in general, you'll rarely hear one of our car rental experts ask the question, "Where is that?" or say, "Never heard of it!"

But what if you're traveling off the beaten path? What if you've decided to get away from it all, or to seek out somewhere new and unusual to hang your hat for a weekend? It happens! And over the last decade in the car rental comparison business, we've booked rentals for quite a few people who were going to far-off (and far-out) places! From the Bat Cave, North Carolina, in the United States to Dollarbeg, Scotland, from a place called Normal to one called Odd, and from Why to Whynot, this is the World's Top 120 Cities with Funny Names!

We at VroomVroomVroom created this list to honor and recognize all the little places that made us smile or laugh. We've put forth our best effort to collect all of our favorite place names in one page and we hope you crack a smile when you read them, too!
