A Village Named Mongolia in Canada?!

What if I told you there’s a village named Mongolia in Ontario, Canada? That’s right. Near Toronto.

You can check this out right here.

So why did a village get named Mongolia? Are there any Mongolians there?

Nope. The founder of this… hamlet (village) wanted to name it California, and chose Mongolia because his first choice wasn’t available for registration. Judging by how this founder was unaware of California’s existence, we don’t think Mongolia was his second choice. He probably went through all the big names before landing on an obscure country name like ours. It’s like a man inventing a new kind of car and wanting to name it Toyota.
