Welcome to a bunch of people groaning and grumbling, the anthem to bring in the new year.

When you're naming something, ideally it has to be catchy, memorable, and descriptive. Just saying it should evoke some kind of feeling or image or memory; the maximum power of language in general. Pony tabletop settings are really really good in that department, because you can make people and places as literal as you want and it still fits. But regardless, sometimes a name crystalizes around an entirely different concept... and as a DM, you kinda have to just go for it. Because yes, it IS worth it.

I'm fond of the town named "Horse Pun" in my setting. XD

It's arguably not even a pun. The phrase "get the heck outta Dodge" normally refers to Dodge City. Here's it Dodge Junction.

I had a campaign where the Dwarven paladin had a bad habit of rolling 1s and throwing her weapon. We would randomize who she threw it at, but it inevitably hit whomever had the lowest hit points. On more than one occasion, that knocked them out. So, we started calling it "Last Rites"
