The 15 strangest town names in North America


Flin Flon

Although Flin Flon, stuck between Manitoba and Saskatchewan in Canada, and Tarzana, California could not be more different when it comes to geography, they do have one thing in common: they’re both named after characters in a science fiction book. Flin Flon got its name from Josiah Flintabbatey Flonatin, the lead character in J.E. Preston Muddock’s The Sunless City.
