Nicknames for places - Let's think of some new ones

You know like how Sheffield is Steel City or Oklahoma is The Sooner State or whatever.

It probably won’t be but it might be fun to think of some of our own for places.

Just to let you know in advance I have very low expectations for this thread and would be fine with it turning into a chat about something completely unrelated to the OP.

Ooo! Theo thought of a good one!


Sheffield could be shitfield, if you wanted to be derogatory. Dunno, never been.

(mainly posting that so I can laugh at @roastthemonaspit’s reply again)

That is a very funny post.

However, I’m looking for them to follow a ‘The [SOMETHING] City/State/Town’ format or something like that

Individual places aren’t really known for anything anymore, just damp identikit Brexit mush.

It’s not often that I have reason to bring up The Mustard City, but should the opportunity arise, then this will be the term I use.
