The publisher of the map assures these are all real UK places.

2. South Wales includes such classics as Pwllypant, Cwm Farteg, and Bully-Hole Bottom.

5. Sussex is notable for having Dicker, The Dicker, and Upper Dicker all nearby.

6. There is also a surprising number of place names that are also emotions (Seething, Corney, Lusty).
