The wackiest condo names in Singapore, according to Twitter users

What’s in a name? While a rose by any other name would smell just as sweet, it’s hard to deny that names are more than labels, they create first impressions too.

There are many condominiums in Singapore with really smart, classy names — think Uptown@Farrer, Rivertree Residences and Bayshore Park — but there are also plenty of those with names that some might say are downright ridiculous, bizarre and cringe-worthy.

The really unfortunate names

Purely, why?

Patrick Star once said the inner machinations of his mind are an enigma, we’d wager the same for whoever came up with these names.
