The mayor's family.
A map of Three Way gives the likely explanation of the town's name, but let's not rule out any other explanations.

Was this written by a journalism student? There could have been more detail on each of these towns, especially where they are located in AZ. One city gets three lines and another barely gets a sentence.

The only worse than the names of these towns, is the article you guys have written and continue posting.

I remember my grandparents saying Sohi was Native America Or Ancient Native American, but forget the translation,

As many of the towns originally stem from Native American or Spanish, I think its not fair for outsiders to make fun of our names. Especially with out the knowledge of Arizona history. Its in poor taste.

Top-o-the-world was named that as it used to house a brothel.

Arizona city should have made the list, because it's barely even a settlement let alone a city. Being from ajo, I never knew why the why was named "why" until now.

Actually, there's a town on the Tohono O'odham reservation called Kaka.  I would have included that one.

Wagon Wheel isn't really a town it's more like a neighborhood. Doesn't have a zip code and it's in an unincorporated part of Navajo County between Show Low and Lakeside.

Nothing was abandoned? How sad.
I have always loved the names of the places in Az. Crown King, Bumble Bee, Nothing, Bucket of Blood, Ahwatukee.
 Having our own bagdad was fun during Desert Shield. One of the radio stations kept one of their people there during the whole thing so they could report "live from Bagdad".

Miami made this list, really? There are cities and towns all over the state (and country) that are named after other cities. Hell, most of the city names in the US were originally taken from the settlers' previous homes.

On your way to Rocky Point , stop at the Flores & Sons Chevron in WHY and get you a red chili beef burrito.

When I moved to Arizona, the first town name to arouse my curiosity was Show Low.  I know the story and I still think it's at least as weird as Surprise.

Worst Name in Arizona?  Matthew Hendley (how original).  Hendley is a wanna-be journalist that cannot climb any higher in journalism than the gutters of Phoenix New Times.
