I find place names fascinating, and have spent many a long and boring journey pouring over the road atlas in the car discovering all manner of wierd and wonderful places... there is an English musician called Tom Bliss who has made an excellent poem using only English and Welsh place names (and prepositions), called 'Middle English and Welsh pie' it is well worth a listen... http://youtu.be/6tltEZzTxxs
Actually I think it reminds me a a new map. I remember getting lost driving to Scotland from England well my husband was driving I was supposed to be navigating. So my fault of course and we ended up in a town called MOIRA . Can you believe that!!!! . I've tried to find it on maps again but I haven't managed.
