Peculiar, Uncertain, & Two Egg: the Unusual Origins of More than 3,000 American Place Names
Don Blevins (au). This fascinating book, the result of many years of research, is a collection of more than 3,000 odd town names & their origins. If you start looking, you will find that America is filled with towns with fascinating monikers. For instance, there is a small town called Two Egg in the Florida panhandle, which received its name from the time a store opened there & the first customer walked in & asked for “two eggs.” The list goes on & on, including stories of such intriguing places as Peculiar, Uncertain, Embarrass, Baby Head, Coupon, Gnaw Bone, Goose Egg, Total Wreck, & Welfare. How charming to know that just a few miles from the Interstate lies a tiny hamlet by the name of Hot Coffee or Pancake. Maps.
