Booger Hole, West Virginia
In 1917, the community was subjected to "about a dozen" murders during a short period of time. Although folklore has it that the community's name derived from this violence – "booger" being a local usage for the "boogieman" – a contemporary press account clearly shows that the community was already called "Booger Hole" at the time of the murders.
The community was likely named after Worms, Germany.
No Name, Colorado
The No-Name (which No Name was named after) was one of the boats on John Wesley Powell's expedition in 1869 to map out the COLORADO River along with the other boats including the Emma Dean, Kitty Clyde's sister and Maid of the Canyon
Satans Kingdom, Massachusetts
It was named Satan's Kingdom after a resident of Northfield walked out of a church where a sermon about the fires of hell had just been given and saw a forest fire across the Connecticut River, and observed that Satan's Kingdom was burning.
Santa Claus, Indiana
The town has the world's only post office to bear the name of the eponymous Christmas figure. Because of this popular name, the post office receives thousands of letters to Santa from all over the world each year. A group of volunteers known as Santa's Elves ensures each child receives a reply from Santa Claus; this tradition has been in existence since at least 1914.
Rough and Ready, California
The town declared its secession from the Union as The Great Republic of Rough and Ready on 7 April 1850, largely to avoid mining taxes, but voted to rejoin the Union less than three months later on 4 July.

Sweet Lips, Tennessee
The first settlers arrived in the 1820s. Residents have claimed that the name comes from "settlers (or wandering hobos or thirsty Civil War soldiers, depending on whom you ask) who declared water from a creek to be 'sweet to the lips.'"
Cut and Shoot, Texas
According to one local legend, Cut and Shoot was named after a 1912 community confrontation that almost led to violence. According to differing versions of the story, the dispute was over:
The design of a new steeple for the town's only church,
The issue of who should be allowed to preach there, or
The conflicting land claims among church members.
Whatever the circumstances were, a small boy at the scene reportedly said he was scared and declared, "I'm going to cut around the corner and shoot through the bushes in a minute!" This statement apparently stayed in the residents' minds and was eventually adopted as the town's name.
Climax got its name in 1834, when the family of Judge Caleb Eldred found a prairie after months of searching for good farmland. His son, Daniel B. Eldred, climbed a tree to look around and said, "This caps the climax of everything we saw."
