15 of the strangest place names in Canada


Eyebrow, Saskatchewan

When you hear that this village is named after an eyebrow-shaped hill above a prairie lake, it doesn’t seem so strange. But picture passing a sign that says “Welcome to Eyebrow, Population 200,” or someone saying, “I’m from Eyebrow,” and it’s weird again. A Google image search reveals some raised-eyebrow selfies in front of the village sign, so people are obviously having fun with it. Along with the Canadian trend of naming geographic locations after food or sexual innuendo, anatomical names prove to be pretty popular as well; honourable mentions go to Crotch Lake, Ontario, Jerry’s Nose, Newfoundland, Elbow, Saskatchewan, and Finger, Manitoba.
