Minnesota towns have many names.  Have you ever looked at a map of Minnesota and tried to pronounce some of them? It can be difficult. I've spent too much time trying to say some of our town names. It's very entertaining and I highly recommend you do it.

While many of our town names are a little strange and difficult, there are others that are so common they also double as names for humans. There are over 45 town names on our list that just so happen to also be people names. Unfortunately for me, my name didn't make this list. Did yours? Bonus points if your first name and last name are on this list. That makes you the ultimate Minnesotan.
