Truth or Consequences (New Mexico, U.S.A.) is perhaps the most famously named location with some kind of association with lies, deception and falsehood. It’s a loose affiliation because the town’s name came from the 1950’s game show of the same name. But I like the name so much I had to do something with it.
This inspired me to build a map of other locations across the globe with links to lies and fibs (and perhaps truth as well). I’ve limited it to English place names to begin — no doubt we can all find many others in other languages. Check out my interactive map below — zoom in on Deception Range in Australia, False Bay in South Africa or Bluff City, Tennessee.
