Places with bizarre names-Dildo, Newfoundland. This charming historical fishing village was named one of Canada's prettiest towns. It was founded in the 1700's and its earliest residents, the Maritime Archaic aboriginal people, go as far back as 2,000 B.C. Town of Dildo, Newfoundland
No one can say how it got its moniker. It's believed to be named after Dildo Arm, or Dildo Harbour. There are other theories, one involving a Spanish sailor, with that name, who had visited the area to its more blush-worthy definition, the phallus.
Dildonians are proud of their town, refusing to change its name, even as it has brought both fame and notoriety, with plenty of wisecracks in between.
