I wonder who invents these place names?

 

Hairy ford shire?

Leo minster or should that be lem minster?

What is that all about?

 

From Ancestry.com

 

Hereford

English: habitational name from Hereford in Herefordshire, or Harford in Devon and Goucestershire, all named from Old English here ‘army’ + ford ‘ford’.

 

From information britain

 

Leominster is another market town on the Black and White Village Trail. Dating from the 7th century, its first recorded name is 'Llanllieni', the Welsh name meaning 'the church on the streams'.

Born and bred in Newcastle Upon Tyne

 

Lived in Leicester, Nottingham, Muswell Hill (spit) and now have been living in Berkhamsted, Hertfordshire for aeons. Despite living 'darn sarf' I still drink a glass of water and not a 'glarss' and follow the one true religion (The Toon).
