What are some US city names that contain a hyphen or an apostrophe or any other special character?
The Domestic Names Committee of the U.S. Board on Geographic Names doesn't like apostrophes. There are now only five place names in the whole of the US that use the possessive apostrophe.
- Martha’s Vineyard, MA
- Ike’s Point, NJ
- John E’s Pond, RI
- Clark’s Mountain, OR
- Carlos Elmer’s Joshua View, AZ
See: Theres a Question Mark Hanging Over the Apostrophes Future. [sic: Theres]
Hyphens in US Cities include:
- Dover-Foxcroft, Maine: created in 1922 by the merger of towns Dover and Foxcroft
- Elko New Market, Minnesota: created in 2006 from a merger of bordering cities Elko and New Market.
- Helena-West Helena, Arkansas: created in 2006 by the merger of the former cities of Helena and West Helena
- La Cañada Flintridge, California: created from unincorporated areas called La Cañada and Flintridge
- Leo-Cedarville, Indiana: created by the merger of Leo and Cedarville
- Lexington-Fayette, Kentucky: the official name of the merged city of Lexington and county of Fayette
- Little River-Academy, Texas: created from the merger of Little River and Academy in 1980
- Fuquay-Varina, North Carolina: created from the merger of Fuquay Springs and Varina
- Pico Rivera, California: created from unincorporated areas called Pico and Rivera
- Melcher-Dallas, Iowa: created by the merger of the cities of Melcher and Dallas in 1986
- Miami-Dade County, Florida: The governments of Dade County and its largest city, Miami, have been merged since 1957, but the county did not take its current name until 1997, when county voters passed a referendum to that effect.
- Milton-Freewater, Oregon: created in 1951 from the merger of Milton and Freewater.
- Matanuska-Susitna Borough, Alaska: Named for Matanuska River and the town of Susitna.
- More than half of the land area of Alaska is within the Unorganized Borough which is administered directly by the state. Therefore, the United States Government considers the census areas within the Unorganized Borough to be county-equivalent entities. Four of these have double (or triple) names:
- Norwood Young America, Minnesota, formed in 1997 when the cities of Norwood and Young America merged.
- Sedro-Woolley, Washington, formed in 1898 from towns Sedro and Woolley
- Soddy-Daisy, Tennessee, created in 1969 by the incorporation of the former communities of Soddy and Daisy, plus some surrounding areas
- Texarkana, on the border between Texas and Arkansas, and near the triple point of those two states with Louisiana
- Winston-Salem, North Carolina, 1913 merger of the towns of Winston and Salem.
- Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, named after British Parliamentarians John Wilkes and Isaac Barré who were sympathetic to colonial concerns
- Winston-Salem, NC
- Wilkes-Barre, Pa
- Fuquay-Varina, NC
- Sedro-Woolley, WA
- Coeur d'Alene, ID
- Dover-Foxcroft, ME
- O'Fallon, IL
- Apparently more than one city with the same name can exist within a state such as Albion, NY This may have implications where the county in parentheses may appear in the name. This information needs verification.
- Abbreviations as the most common spelling and perhaps even the legal name can appear in city names which results in a period being used:
- Sault Ste. Marie, ON
- St. Charles, IL

Assuming you're not just talking about Irish names like O'Niel and O'Hare, the rule is that you only use the apostrophe if you specifically want to make something possessive. For the family name Smith: If you don't want to make anything possessive and you just want to refer to the family, you …call them Smiths without the apostrophe . If you want to make it possessive for one person, you'd use Smith's . Whereas if you were talking about multiple people called Smith, you say Smiths' . ( Full Answer )

Final apostrophe is only used in the case of plurals ending in s. Otherwise apostrophe plus s is required. Thus we might say we listened to Tom Jones's records at the Joneses' house.
Say that your last name was Tony, you would say First Name Tony's. And if your last name was Clintons, and it ended with and S then you would write in like this, First name Clintons'.. ---. Note that there are some family names that contain an apostrophe, such as O'Connor, O'Shea ... There's also …De'Ath (which look just a shade less gloomy than Death). ( Full Answer )
Just before the "s" in a possessive sense, e.g., Johnson's desk; or Harris's shoes. Answer .. The punctuation mark ( ' ) used to indicate the omission of a letter or number, such as he's for he has or he is. Also used in English to form the possessive, as in John's father. You could be getti…ng confused with a hyphen, which is the punctuation mark ( - ). This is used to separate parts of compound words, to link the words of a phrase, and between syllables of a word split between two consecutive lines. It's also another word for hyphenate or hyphenated, which means the combining of two words e.g; a name (Barker-Thomas). ( Full Answer )
There are two kinds of apostrophe in English. This question is about the punctuation mark (the raised comma). For the literary term where a non-living thing is spoken to, see the related question below. To indicate missing letters: can't, isn't, it's (can not; is not; it is): for example…: . I can't do it; . it isn't right; . in fact it's very wrong To indicate the possessive: boy's, boys' for example: . The boys' hats went in the air; (several boys) . one boy's hat stayed there. (one boy) . The dog's breakfast (one dog) . the child's teacher (one child) . the children's teacher (several children) . the lady's book (one lady) . the ladies' committee (several ladies) The apostrophe is never used to show plurals, and it should not be used after numbers. "My father wears trousers from the 1980s." is correct, unlike his fashion sense. ( Full Answer )
If you are indicating possession (Achilles' heal) use an apostrophe at the end of the word. If you are simply stating his name, there is no apostrophe.
You use an apostrophe after a person's name to show possession of the object that follows the name, e.g., "This is John's hat," or "These are Mary's opinions." If the name already ends in an s, this is what you write: "This is James' magic bag." Compared to: "This is Kragen's magic bag."
Winston-Salem, North Carolina. The only city in the United States with dash in it's name.
\nApostrophes are correctly used in names only to show the possessive ( or genitive) case, for example Russ's car is here; or This is the Joneses' house. It has become popular, however, to put silly apostrophes in the names themselves, but since there is no reason for it there can be no rule governi…ng it. ( Full Answer )
Names that end in Z are treated the same as names ending in any other letter. Just use an apostrophe S to denote possession. Example: "Mr. Fuzz's scruffy nose"
It would be text. However, if there are just numbers and a hypen or hyphens, then the hyphens could be a minus sign and you would get a formula if you put an equals sign before it.
If you are showing possession, then you use an apostrophe and an s at the end of the name...unless the name ends with an s. In that case, you only add the apostrophe. example: Tom's brother is James. James' brother is Tom.
In English, apostrophes in names are used primarily to indicate the possessive case, for example Bob Jones's house, the Joneses' house; but also in certain Irish patronymics to indicate a descendant, for example O'Connor; and in names transcribed from foreign alphabets to indicate letters for which …there is no English equivalent, for example 'Ali or Qur'an.

This is a false statement, not a question. If there is something you would like to know, ask a question using words that make it clear what you want to know.
Any name of a city can have an apostrophe s if it shows possession of something. Examples: New York's fashion Paris' Eiffel Tower
In English, an apostrophe (plus s in the singular) is used with a person's name to put it in the possessive case: He read Bess's book; The Joneses' house is big. It also is found in Irish names having the the O prefix: O'Leary.
Contractions are not suitable for formal writing. Use contractions only in informal settings. For example in a letter to a friend, you might write "Joe Smith's gone again."
No. you don't need to unless you are talking about something they own. Ex. I saw Alexis. I took Alexis's bike. Hope that helps. :) I will add to the above by saying that at one time it was common to indicate possession regarding nouns ending in "s" by simply adding an apostrophe after the "s" witho…ut an additional "s". Therefore the above example would have taken the form "...Alexis' bike", and would have been considered acceptable under grammatical rules of the day. Like much of English grammer, this rule made little sense and was based more on whimsy than logic. In this case, however, logic eventually prevailed, and today the possessive case of nouns ending in "s" is formed in the same manner as nouns ending in any other letter - by adding apostrophe "s".

Examples: The children don't like to play in Rose's garden. It's a great day today. Let's go to Ann's house.
Yes. For example: " James's car broke down" "I am going to Mr. Jones's house" "This is Biff Liss's hat." They are pronounced with an extra syllable at the end: Jamesez, Jonesez, Lissez. There is one exception to this rule: the name Jesus. In "Jesus' beard was black." it is not pronounce…d Jezuzez nor written Jesus's. ( Full Answer )
To use special characters in horse names and descriptions on Horse Isle, players must use their Wii's, giving it the title "Wii names." On your Wii, you can log on to Horse Isle and insert funky characters for your horses name. If you don't have a wii, but would like wii names, you can probably find… a player who is willing to do it for $$. Most players charge about 2m per wii name. But make sure you trust that player, because you have to give them your horse for them to be able to do the wii name, so make sure you trust them. - ScarletStorm. Palomino Server : ) On Pinto server it is a little bit more - today I paid 8m for 2 horses that both have 3 letter names. - Edited by AutumnMare Pinto Server ( Full Answer )
If you're using regular expressions, the character commonly used is a dot '.'. This will match any character except a newline. To match all characters including newlines would involve a statement, not a single character.
Yes a person can use a hyphenated surname (last name) which would be the woman's maiden name hyphenated with her married name. Example: Jane Doe-Smith. Often famous people or people known by their surname in a business they are running will keep their family name hyphenated with whomever they marry,… but keep both the maiden surname and married surname is becoming more common practice. In ways keeping both names comes in handy if one is into genealogy. ( Full Answer )
Is Phoebe a good name for a character who is spunky and clever and do you have any other name suggestions for this character?
Any name that you like is a "good" name! She's your character! Here is a LINK to a name generator if you want to find lists of names for other characters.
If the name ends in s like James and you want to say something like jameses favourite colour is red then you do this- James' and the s becomes the plural.
No, unless your name has an apostrophe in it or you are using it in the possessive.
Is it okay for other animators to use some other names for the characters that are already used or are the names of the characters copyrighted?
Many popular character names and images may be protected by trademark in addition to copyright. For example, a different animal called Pluto would probably incite Disney to action, as would a character identical to Pluto but called something else. However, a doglike creature wearing pants, reasonabl…y dissimilar to Pluto and with an unrelated name should be okay. Thank you. ( Full Answer )
Yes, the apostrophe in that position (after the r and before the s) shows singular possession... singular (your dad is one person) possession (he possesses or owns his name. :)
Some multiple-word terms are easily read as one word, while other sets of words need to be hyphenated either for ease of visual interpretation and pronunciation, or simply to keep the end result from becoming unwieldy. Many words we routinely use as a single word today were once hyphenated; other…s that today are hyphenated will probably remain so. For example, the term milk shake can be equally correctly written 'milk shake', 'milk-shake' or 'milkshake': none of the three appears especially wrong, though the two-word version is less common today. One day the term will probably lose its space, and later its hyphen, forever. The term two-word, though, would look clumsy written as twoword, and would be difficult to pronounce, especially for those learning English. But if we write, 'â¦ the two word version â¦' it could lead to misinterpretation. The term 'two-word', in this case, needs hyphenating, unless we want to write, 'â¦ the "two word" version â¦', which some might consider clumsy. On the other hand, the word 'coordination' is today routinely written without a hyphen, but some people still prefer 'co-ordination', feeling uncomfortable pronouncing (and we all mentally pronounce words as we read them) the unhyphenated 'coor-' part of the word. It's difficult to pin down hard-and-fast (or hard and fast, but not hardandfast) rules in these situations, and there seems little point in attempting to do so, since the only useful aim might be to settle an argument over which expression is ultimately and solely gramatically correct in English. This is fine for purely academic intentions or perhaps to achieve a definitive ruling in a word game (or word-game, but possibly not yet a wordgame), but for all practical purposes such questions simply come down to common usage. If the majority of people use words or phrases in a certain way, this is how most speakers of the language will feel comfortable in expressing those terms; this is, in other words, common usage - the ultimate decider of right, wrong, maybe, or maybe not, in any discussion on language. It is the users of any language who ultimately decide how that language is used. So in the end you'll very likely be safe to consider how you feel about the way any idea is expressed: if it sounds good, looks fine, and you feel okay with it, you're probably right. ( Full Answer )

An apostrophe is used in a proper name to show possession. Leah's dress, David's voice, and Justin's hair, for example.
There are no cities, but there is an unincorporated community named Zoe, in Lee County, Kentucky.
Yes, you do because the apostrophe, in this case, shows belonging. The name belongs to your mom.
Yes. An apostrophe is used with the names that end with s. Examples: Ross' bag or Ross's bag Cris' watch
Officially, no. If you have heard of another city referred to as being "Indianapolis", then it's probably just a nickname.

Last names should be treated exactly as though they were regular words. So if you're addressing the Smith family, you should write, "Dear Smiths" (simply add an "s" to make it plural, just as you would for "blacksmith"). If you're addressing the Jones family, you should write, "Dear Joneses" (add "e…s" as you would to "glass" or any other word ending in "s"). ( Full Answer )
It (apostrophe at the end of a name) is used to show that a thing belongs or pertains to the person to whose name it is affixed. "This is Doug's dog." It's also used as a contraction for ' Name is'; "Doug's not here."
If i use the name of any character of Disney per example Cinderella or Snow White do i have to pay any character name rights?
Yes. Walt Disney has most rights to names like those and in paying it would be an awful lot.
You use it when you are referring to the person's property if they have an 's' at the end of their name, for example: You COULD use Jones's books OR Jones' books
Â· Carson City, Nevada Â· Jefferson City, Missouri Â· Oklahoma City, Oklahoma Â· Salt Lake City, Utah
Generally the same rule applies as for contractions: an apostrophe replaces a missing letter or missing letters. For example, O'Malley was probably originally Of Malley, and D'Angelo was probably originally De Angelo.
Cities, no, but there are two places in the US named Calcutta.There's a census-designated place with a population of about 3500in Ohio, and there's an unincorporated community in West Virginia.
