I was born in a city with a very strange name: Bulawayo.

Strange for three reasons:

1) Its' name in Ndebele means "place of the killing" ~ a strange place to be born in.
2) It was the African king Lobengula's capital city.
3) It didn't split apart in a horrific earthquake on September 11, 1967 when I was born.

Winona.  It's the name of an Indian princess who jumped to her death rather than be forced into an arranged marriage.  She did that about 100 miles from here, but I guess that's close enough.  Or so the legend goes  TeddyR It's a gorgeous little Midwestern town, ruined only by the fact that it's infested with humans.

I remember you saying on another thread that there were a couple of strange attacks on people there, using weird things like a knife and a pizza, as well as a squeegee and a windshield.  BounceGiggle

Bulawayo also features some beautiful scenery, including a high, flat topped rock called Ntabazinduna from which the King used to throw his unwanted wives.  Buggedout Buggedout

North Tonawanda.  It's Iroquois (most likely the Seneca dialect) for "North place of swiftly-flowing water."  The neighboring towns are the Town of Tonawanda and the City of Tonawanda.

I was born in a town called Fairfield in Lloyd Nolan Hospital. Why or how the hospital was named after a B movie actor, I don't know.

I was only born in Bulawayo and I never lived there ~ lived all my life up until 16 in another town called Gwelo ~ now renamed Gweru.

Nice to see you back, by the way, Cheeze.  Thumbup

Harrisburg, Pennsylvania capital of the state of Pennsylvania.  From what my parents have both told me that if my mom had her way, I would have been born in Indianapolis, Indiana so that I could be born at the speedway during the Indy 500 that year in 85.

I was born in Grand Rapids, MI second largest city in the state. I only lived there as long as I was in the hospital though. I never did get why my parents wanted me to be born 45 minutes away from where we lived in Holland which has a perfectly fine hospital. I think ill just chalk it up to my family being wierd.

Malden, Massachusetts.  About as obscure as you can get.
