Inspired by Gedunker's post in the Manyunk thread about Conshohocken, PA being the least-sonorous city name in the US, I'd like to assemble a whole rogues gallery of not-so-sonorous city and town names. I always thought Conshohocken didn't sound so nice. I've noticed that a lot of these names, like Conshohocken, have American Indian ancestry. So maybe we're just communicating a cultural bias for sounds that are more comfortable with the English-speaking tongue.
Anyway, here are some names that quickly come to mind:
Hockessin, DE, a small town a little south of Conshy. Must have been the same Indians.
Piscataway, NJ. Its got cat piss in it. Hard to beat for negative alliteration.
Mauch Chunk, PA (now Jim Thorpe)
Manunka Chunk, PA, only the 2nd "chunk" town I ever found.
Hackensack, NJ, another Indian name? It sounds like a game stoners play!
Ho-Ho-Kus...that's not hokum, that's a real town's name!
So, anyone have some good ones?
