There’s lists like these and many more around the web.

The one I linked in particular mentioned two in New Zealand (AWWW YEAAA):

Taumatawhakatangihangakoauauotamateapokaiwhenuakitanatahu (More of an awesome name to me personally)

and

Whakapapa (pronounced ‘Fuck a Papa’)

However no mention of Te Puke, which sounds just fine when pronounced in the native language but ask any tourist to say it out loud X^D

Going back to America, that list also didn’t address Shit, Texas and Boring, Oregon

I’ve been through Boring, OR. It was pretty entertaining to see “Boring Fire Dept.” and such.

I’m from Portland and I still think this is funny. They had to put Boring over Oregon City….


Also, I must quote from one of my favourite scenes from The Simpsons.

Krusty: OK, memorize these funny place names: Walla Walla. Keokuk. Cucamonga. Seattle --
Homer: [laughs] Stop it, you’re killing me! [laughs more] Seattle.
Krusty: [groans]
