What's in a name? Places in Nova Scotia

Updated: Nov 22, 2020

Here you will find the beginning of what I hope to be an absolute complete list of every place name in the province of Nova Scotia. Please let me know if there are spelling errors or if you do not see a place name on the list. I will keep adding to this list each time I find one missing and I know there are a lot of them. Everytime I look on a map I find several places not on this list yet! You can let me know via email at proudtobeabluenoser@gmail.com or on my Facebook page at Bluenoser via Instant Message or just post it in a comment under the link to this page. Please and thank you!


Eventually I hope to have a link to a separate blog post for every place name with information, photos, etc. This will be a work in progress for quite a while.


Every three days I want to showcase a randomly selected community in Nova Scotia so stay tuned and see when your community will be the star of Scotia's Showcase! Scotia's Showcase starts tomorrow, May 18, 2020!
