This online collection of maps show some of the world's saddest places - at least in name.http://www.stumbleupon.com/su/6rJHGN/:DlYxRR$9:OKN9b0I!/www.atlasobscura.com/articles/sad-topographies-maps
For example, there are many routes to Misery. From the north, you can take the Rue du Jeu de Paume; from the east, the Rue de Licourt; and from the south, the Rue de Billy, a meandering asphalt track that winds past bare fields, under an open sky. Any of these will lead to this French village of around 140 residents, 90 miles north of Paris.
There's a Lonely Island and a Heartbreak Lake.
Do you know of any unusual place names? I used to have to giggle when I passed a village called Ugly near to where I grew up.
