Alberta Town Names

Post by MinchinWeb » 07 Mar 2011 13:45

From 'Acme' to 'Zama City,' this is a collection of 1500+ real Alberta, Canada place names. They were taken from cities, towns, villages, hamlets and neighbourhoods around the province and all exist! Although strong English roots show, French and First Nations (Indian) names figure prominently as well. Available here or on BaNaNaS.

If you have an Alberta name that I missed and you would like added to the list, let me know.
A shout out to PlanetMaker and Hyronymus' Dutch Town Names for getting me started.

Updated (March 8, 2011): Minor cosmetic updates, up to version 3

I don't play this game, personally, but, you missed the 7th largest metro in Alberta, Grande Prairie :D

It made the list too!

Code: Select all

text("Grande Cache", 8),
text("Grande Prairie", 55),
text("Grandin", 1),

However, with 1500 names :D, they can't all show up in my sampler! But I'm glad someone is paying attention. And I can highly recommend the game. :)
