Today I came across a site, presented by Lady Fortune the Absurd of Greater Internetshire, that automatically generates silly aristocratic titles, such as The Very Reverend Omniglot the Random of Midhoop St Giggleswich or Milord Sir Lord Simon the Contrite of Much Moulding upon Carpet.
Some of the names it throws up, such as Piddletrenthide, Barton in the Beans and Giggleswick, are genuine places in the UK, but many of them are made up. Piddletrenthide is a small village on the River Piddle in Dorset, Barton in the Beans is in Leicestershire, and Giggleswick is in North Yorkshire.
There are plenty of other oddly-named places in the UK, including Chipping Sodbury, Ugglebarnby, Steeple Bumpstead, Blubberhouses and Bugthorpe, and this site generates more.
Are there are any oddly-named places near you?
