Naming the Wastelands!!

As regular followers of my humble blog will know, I have been running a ideas post over on the Post Apoc Wargames forum to get some interaction going and get some suggestions for the names of the main factions in this new wasteland. The new wastes are going to be inspired by the (sometimes strange) things discussed over on the Post Apoc Wargames forum over the last few years. It is a salute to a forum & some of the wonderful people I have met online there in the last few years of running the forum.
From past experience the members of Post Apoc Wargames Forum are not big on voting, so I have taken some time to mull over the suggested names.  We have some winners. The suggested names to date are:
The Warlord’s settlement/fortress:
The Mound - By wiggles
The Oil Pan - by Tinker
New Hope - by Rych
Boneyard by Rych
The Fortress of Rust by Rych
Black God Forge Fortress by nasa911
The Smog Pits by TheMightyFlip
Doom by MBG
Dregsville by MBG
Fortress of Skulls by MBG
Fortress of Bones by MBG
New Anarchy by MBG
New Heaven by harveywallbanger
The Last Stop by harveywallbanger
The Wastelands they inhabit:
The Sump - By wiggles
The Sump Basin - By Tinker
Usanduk - By Rych
The Republic of Dan by Rych
No Go Zone by Rych
The Desert of Ashes by Slayer Dragonwing
The Devils Oasis by Rych
Heaven & Hell by Hollander
Insanity Sands by nasa911
The Forlorn Wastes by MBG
The Desolation by MBG
The Nowhere by MBG
The Great Nothing by harveywallbanger
The names of the city/civilisation:
The Resurgency - By wiggles
shittip - by Rych
Fear hole by Heavyfishcannon
Kingdom of Mercy by Rych
Land of the Callies by Rych
The New Wall by Rych
Insanity Sands freeman by nasa911
Great Lakes by MBG
Civilisation by MBG
Polis by MBG
The Western Alliance by MBG
The Knights of Yooza and Ukk by harveywallbanger
Places in the Wastelands:
Moramarth’s Morass – a septic sump into which all the pollution and poisons drain. by Moramarth
Ol Greggs lair - A wasteland legend.
Paps of St Milla - a couple of low hills where mutants fear to tread - by the Warlord
Dirty Meg's Slag hole by heavyfishcannon
Dirty Meg’s brothel - by Tinker
Ross' Shed of Boobs - By Rych
Dawgie's Caverns by MBG
Baddawg Mountain by MBG
Hacienda Pudenda by Moramarth
Mr Cleans Bath House by Rych
The Dawg Howse - by Sykoholic
Rusty Hole by MBG
Cheesy Crack by MBG
S**t Creek by Tinker
Shady Sand's Trading Post by Shady13
Coober Pedy by Warlord Paul (on blogger)
Colcors by Warlord Paul (on blogger)
Bostop by Warlord Paul (on blogger)
Old Clinik by Warlord Paul (on blogger)
Servstation by Warlord Paul (on blogger)
Disneland by Warlord Paul (on blogger)
Woolmarket by Warlord Paul (on blogger)
And the Winning Names are:
The Warlords Fortress/Town: The Mound – by Mr Wiggles. This seems to be the best name seeing as the place anyone would use as a defendable position would be a hill or mound.
The Wastelands: The Republic of Dan – by Rych. I think this would be a good name the Warlords people would call the area. In general the land will simply be known as the Wastes, like everywhere else on MBW. It may even be called the Wastelands of Dan by the Wastelanders. 
The Name of the city/civilisation: This was a difficult one for me to choose from. All the names suggested do not fit the city faction in my mind. They are too scrappy & rough n ready for a shining beacon of civilisation in the wastes. So I will be going with a suggestion of my own. As the city is on a lake I am going to use Great Lakes as its name.
Wiggles & Rych will be added to the mini warband. I hope to find some minis to use as them.
Mattblackgod's world is a big place. Much of it is unchartered. The other name suggestions will be used to populate new parts of the wasted lands of MBW.
Thankyou everyone for giving me suggested names for the new Wastelands and taking part in my madness.
And now....time to start writing up the background stories and fluff.
