One day in Dildo

Hitchhiking to Dildo

Our tour of Newfoundland continued with a visit of the lovely town Dildo. This is a beautiful little community on Trinity Bay, right at the Atlantic.

When we drove into Dildo I hoped for crazy Dildo merchandise and all. Soon we got the feeling, that the Dildonians want to downplay the name of their town. I still don’t now why, I think they should totally work it: Dildo cutlery, Dildo cocktails, Dildo shoes, Dildo hats. So many possibilties!

However, here is the Dildonian explanation of how Dildo got its name:

“D’Isle Duo” can be translated into Spanish, Portuguese and French, all roughly meaning ‘two islands’. With respect to our community, we believe these two islands to be Spread Eagle and Dildo Island, both visible from our community. Over time, with the dialects of the settlers, the flow has been lost and it evolved into Dildo.

Me loves them islands names, bys.

Up next: My visit to the Dildo Interpretation Centre.

    I think we need a vacation home on Spread Eagle Island overlooking Dildo..and then maybe we can open a B&B in Virgin Arm. It’s too good to be true, let’s go back…

    There is a village called Poppenhausen at the Rhön, but Newfoundland seems to have better names. I want to go back!

    and regards from the Hartwichstrasse.
    I like “Truth or Consequences” as a city name but there seems to be no sexual connotation. How are the girls called there? “Dildonian girls” sounds pretty.

    There is also Come-By-Chance, Little Hearts Ease, Paradise, Conception Bay. I lived there for several years as a child. A few years ago, the town of Dildo and the durrounding area tried to change the name of the town to New Harbour (which is is a neighbouring village with whom they wanted to immalgamate), but the older mmbers of the town didn’t want to change the name just because modern society considers the word to be vulgar/sexualy oriented. When I moved here to Halifax in Grade 6 (at which I hadn’t learned what a dildo was) I had to switch schools because I had told some of the kids that this was one of the places that I’d lived. They would chase me home through the woods while throwing rocks at me.

    Rosie, thank you so much for sharing your own Dildo story. I’m so glad they didn’t change the name! And I think those kids were just jealous morons.
