1. Champaign + Urbana = Chambana

Subscribe in a reader

What do you call Champaign-Urbana,the twin cities that house the University of Illinois? Well, folks here have come up with some interesting names. These names coined by the "townies" include:

  • Chambana
  • Shampoo-Banana
  • Champo-Banana

But among these, "Chambana" seems to be the most popular. Even Craigslist's local page is marked as Chambana.
