From Naples to Bunghole Rapids, Idaho has its share of places with unique names

You’d think Bridal Veil Falls would reveal Lady Face Falls, but it doesn’t.

BOISE, Idaho – Idaho location names range from the original Idaho city to inappropriately border areas like Bunghole Rapids.

People tend to name places after, well, people. From boring monosyllabic men like Troy and Paul to real ones like Wallace and Jerome who probably went to Wally and Jerry.

The Gem State also has a soft spot for women’s names with a long e, including Hailey, Shelley, and Kimberly.

You’d think Bridal Veil Falls would reveal Lady Face Falls, but it doesn’t. Speaking of body parts, there is no shortage of anatomical labels in Idaho.

There is no such thing as a broken leg creek without bones. Then there is Bunghole Rapids, which sounds like an ailment related to your Athol.

Some cities in Idaho took their names for inspiration from the world, such as Paris, Atlanta, Naples, and Moscow.

Other places in Gem State feel like you need to know they’re real cities like Garden City, Idaho City, Silver City, and Malad City, which is French for sick.

Religion can also be found in Idaho, with a number of saints; Maries, Anthony and Charles.

Or a spiritual relationship that has a lot to do with death or what happens afterwards. If you’ve found such a fate in the Dead Horse Cave or the Hangman Gulch, for example, bodies of water await.

For example, where would you wait at Purgatory Lake in the Seven Devils Range to find out whether to go to Goose Heaven Lake or Hell Roaring Creek.
