What's in a name? A name defines things, whether it's a person, place or thing. And strong names can leave an impression upon the person hearing it for the very first time. So can weaker names. The greatest state in the Union has a lot of cool city names. Some you could name a child after, some that sound cool but not for a person's name--and some that are just downright goofy. And it's the goofy ones that stand out in your mind years later when you recall that road trip you took that one time. We went thru the list of all the towns in the Lonestar state and these are OUR top 5 silliest town names in Texas. See if you agree:

5. FROGNOT TEXAS

The science teacher didn't want frogs brought to school and banned them from the premises-so they named the town after his wishes.

4. LAZBUDDIE TEXAS

134017246
Anatoliy Samara

It got its name by combining the nicknames of two people who lived there; it's not named after someone's last friend.

3. DIME BOX TEXAS

Marijuana Buds & Joint
Phil Lewis

Sounds like a place you could score some illegal substances. But no, it's just a little town with an odd name.

2. BUG TUSSLE TEXAS

186662597
Wirepec

Word is that there was a swarm of some kind of bug that ruined a church service in town so they named the town after a bug fight.

1. NOODLE TEXAS

Noodle. Seriously. Perhaps there's a whole lot of thinking (or 'noodling') going on there...

And those are our top 5. Comment below and tell us if we missed one that YOU think should have been in the top 5.

LOOK: Things from the year you were born that don't exist anymore

The iconic (and at times silly) toys, technologies, and electronics have been usurped since their grand entrance, either by advances in technology or breakthroughs in common sense. See how many things on this list trigger childhood memories—and which ones were here and gone so fast you missed them entirely.

LOOK: Food history from the year you were born

From product innovations to major recalls, Stacker researched what happened in food history every year since 1921, according to news and government sources.
