Texas Cities :)

From I Love Texas … FB website

If any of y'all are from any of these Texas towns...let us know and if you know how they got their names....even better! (This is from our website and what's been fun is how often it's shared (borrowed) by other folks but most importantly, how many DPS Troopers email us with the names because they're in their territory).

Some of the strangest names of Texas cities and towns:
Looneyville
Lollipop
Mutt and Jeff (not even on the Texas map)
Ben Hur
Weeping Mary
ShorTall
Ding Dong - supposedly named because of two early settlers in the town, Zulis Bell and Bert Bell, who opened a store and hired an artist, Cohn Hoover, to make a sign for it. The Bells instructed the sign painter to make a sign with two bells on it; inside the bells would be their names and the words “Ding Dong” would be coming out of the bell. Over time a community grew around the store, and it took on the name of the words coming out of the bell: Ding Dong.
If you have some history on how these wonderful Texas towns got their names, let us know...we love to share this kind of history with our Texas friends all over the world.


did we forget anyone? ... Dumas and Lubbock (my Hometown) sound pretty funny too

Lubbock county was formed in 1876 named after Thomas Lubbock, a Texas Ranger. His brother Francis Lubbock was the govenor of Texas at the time also

It was called that by the Native Americans, not the white people themselves.

Don't forget Pancake, Tx. It's just northwest of Gatesville. It was named after the first post office was opened by John Pancake in 1884. The most population ever was 200 in the 1890's and has dwindled to 25 in the 1960's and population reporting stopped. It's been years since I've been through there, but I bet there are less than that now. The last time I passed by, there was just a sign, no stores, nothing but farm land.
