Can you imagine telling someone you’re from Catfish Paradise, Arizona? Or Friesland, Wisconsin? Well, for some people that’s a reality because these towns actually exist. Real estate site Estately looked at "dozens of maps" to compile a list of towns across America (they pulled at least five from each state) with some unusual names.

Most of these places aren’t large cities, but are unincorporated areas, villages, or small communities. Some are even abandoned ghost towns, including Nothing, Arizona; Old Roach, Colorado; Knockemstiff, Ohio; and Idiotville, Oregon. Check out the map below, courtesy of Estately:
