St. Austell, the largest town in Cornwall sounds like Saint Arse-hole (Ozoll) in the local dialect

There are loads of pre-celtic names sometimes messed up by English mapmakers like Coswinsawsin, Gracca and indeed celtic ones like Egloshayle (church by the sandy beach/depositional meander) and Chynoweth - chy means 'homestead' followed
by a name or feature.

I used be in the the local planning department and we all had a laugh when the council insisted - despite our warnings - on naming a new housing estate built on the grounds of old hospital by the local name for the area, chyklavje which means 'leper colony' in Cornish (the hospital began as such)

I also like the name of the village 'Frogpool'
