Places ending with X
This is a fun exercise in thinking of cities that end with the letter 'X'. It was originally asked by a Trippy member from Phoenix, a city which ends in X. They assumed that there are probably more cities in Europe than the U.S. that end in X. Can you think of any to add to the list?
- and many more...
Here are some funny answers:
"AX Armani Exchange :)"
"Botox, If Meg Ryans face counts as a place name"
"I did not know there is a city named CLIMAX :)"
Here are places that are not really cities:
"There is an island in Mexico called Holbox, but that is not a city."
"All the "...sex's" in england and there are lots of them are counties not cities.."
"I think I have been to zzyzx, but ti's not really a city --- all it had if I remember right was a store selling Dates :)"
What about France?
"Heaps in France ending with -eux, -oux, -eix, -ieux, -eaux ..."
"Yes we have loads, just a few here: Bordeaux, Meaux, Combloux, Morlaix, Dreux, Chateauroux, Morcenx, Venissieux."
In which countries would 'X' be uncommon?
"Pretty sure we do not have any place names in denmark that ends with an X. Very uncommon letter in denmark."
"Same with Norway. X is very little used"
"We don't have x-ending places, we don't even have X in any Finnish word (I think)"
"same thing in Philippines where I grew up and also in other Asian countries - no letter x"
