The best names in the whole wide world 🌎

On my mind today: Place Names

Last week, I saw two t-shirts that were cute and mostly identical except one had β€œ[name_u]California[/name_u]” across the front and the other had β€œ[name_u]New[/name_u] [name_m]York[/name_m] City”. There were plenty of the [name_u]California[/name_u] shirt in my size and only a couple of the NYC (I found one), but I wasn’t going to get the [name_u]California[/name_u] shirt because I’ve never been to [name_u]California[/name_u] and I thought it would be weird. Thankfully, I never claimed to make sense because I don’t feel this way about names!

I love place names and it doesn’t bother me if I’ve never been there before. [name_m]Just[/name_m] means I get to add a place to my list! Here are some of my favorites:

Arizona
[name_u]Indiana[/name_u]
[name_u]Nevada[/name_u]
[name_f]Alaska[/name_f]
[name_u]Holland[/name_u]
[name_f]Seville[/name_f]/Sevilla
[name_f]Ireland[/name_f]
[name_f]Olympia[/name_f]
[name_u]Phoenix[/name_u]
[name_f]Nola[/name_f]
