The 15 strangest town names in North America


Truth or Consequences, New Mexico

The town was formerly named Hot Springs, but in 1950 the host of radio show Truth or Consequences, Ralph Edwards, announced that he would hold the 10th anniversary show in the first town that renamed themselves after the show. Hot Springs, New Mexico became Truth or Consequences, New Mexico. Ralph Edwards visited the town the first weekend of May for the next 50 years.
