Not just cities or towns but also some city/town parts and islands included:

Kärpänen (=Fly)
Kottero (=One of Finnish nicknames for a word 'car')
Paskasaari (=Island of ****, the less nicey name for poopoo)
Saari (=Island, just pure island. That was name of one previous town, now joined with another town)
Perähörkkölä (=could be translated as 'Backwoods')
Eno (=Uncle, from mom's side)
Luumäki (=Hill of bones)
Kauhajoki (=River of a shovel)
Karkkila (=Candyville)
Maksamaa (=Land of liver)
Virrat (=Steams)
Joutseno (=Swan + letter o)

"On hyviä vuosia, kauniita muistoja, mutta kuitenkaan, en saata unohtaa,
Että koskaan en ole yksin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Vaikka myrsky hetkeksi tyyntyykin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Ja pian taas uusin hönkäyksin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Hei tuu mun luo, pieneksi hetkeksi. Puhutaan, varjoni, valkoiseksi enkeliksi."

Gas City, IN. We were always scared for our lives when my dad went through there.
