For our topic today, we wanted to know what the weirdest names you've ever heard are. Whether it's a person's name, street, town, etc.... What's the weirdest?

JStew: The one that jumps out at me first, was one I heard from my Dad back in the day. He used to work for a cleaning company of some kind, and they were cleaning out a basement or something, and he found a picture of a woman, and her name was on the photo and I'll never forget it. Her name was Triplevina Friend. But also, let's take a look at our own town of Bangor. I've corrected people all my life for pronouncing it any other way than correctly, but in what world would that word ever be pronounced the way it is, based on its spelling. Bang Gore is how it's pronounced... but there aren't two G's, there's no E on the end, and both syllables are emphasized. We're messed up people. There's just no other explanation.

Cori: For me, it's Arundel. That town name has always made me chuckle. I don't know why. Before I spoke English, I spoke German. And let me tell you, there are a ton of strange words in the German language. I think that's why Arundel kind of stands out to me. Deblois and Caratunk are also strange sounding names.
