Do you ever wonder how cities and towns get their names? Because I do. Then, I wonder if I ever would like for a place to be called by my name. At this moment, my answer to that wondering is… I don’t know. Yeah. I don’t know if I would like that and I also don’t know how I would feel about it. I guess it would be very fun to have the power to name something. But if someone said they would like to use my name to call a place or a town or a village right now… Perhaps, my answer to that would be “no, not right now but thank you, and please don’t hesitate to ask again later because I might just say yes…”

Anyhoo, when it comes to the catchy or not-so-catchy names of places, we might know a thing or two about their fascinating or their possibly quite crazy histories. It also isn’t very surprising that some names of places are more memorable than others. Of course, a lot of factors come into play when it comes to that. Think of Rio, Berlin, Tokyo, Nairobi, Denver, Helsinki, Bogota, Moscow, and Oslo. Do any of those places ring a bell?

Yes, they are names of cities from around the world. At the same time, they are character names from the hit series Money Heist. Although their names are not so funny and funky sounding compared to this list of very funny and funky town names all over the US, they are still pretty unforgettable
