A “Delight”ful City for a Story

Am I the only writing nerd who sits around reading lists of city names only to have my imagination run off? I struggle with naming cities in my stories, but considering some of the ones that exist in real life, maybe I don’t need to worry so much 🙂

Here are a few interesting ones I came across while researching for my WIP.

  • Delight, Arkansas
  • Brilliant, Alabama
  • Paradox, Colorado
  • Needmore, Florida
  • Coffee, Georgia
  • Magic, Idaho
  • Oblong, Illinois
  • Dinwiddle, Indiana
  • Moosehead, Maine
  • Boring, Maryland
  • Whynot, Mississippi
  • Opportunity, Montana
  • Toast, North Carolina
  • Loco, Oklahoma
  • Defeated, Tennessee

And of course, some of my favorite Kentucky towns:

  • Normal
  • Fisty
  • Lovely
  • Ordinary
  • Possom Trot
  • Rabbit Hash
  • Monkey’s Eyebrow
  • Typo
  • And many others 🙂

What are some interesting town names near you?
