Here's What The Urban Dictionary Name Trend Says About Cities In Canada & Yikes

This article contains graphic content that might not be suitable for some readers.

If you've been on social media over the past week or so, you'll have almost certainly seen the Urban Dictionary name trend that's taking over the internet.

For those who haven't, it's pretty simple — you type your name into Urban Dictionary and are given an unofficial meaning. Sometimes it's flattering… sometimes it's absolutely not!

In the case of Canada's cities, it's almost always not.

We looked up some of the site's most hilarious (and ouch-worthy) digs at spots in Canada and almost everyone is getting roasted. Eek!

It's worth noting that while (for the most part) definitions on Urban Dictionary are lighthearted and fun, they are submitted by members of the public and can occasionally be a little too offensive or mean. Research with caution!

While Urban Dictionary has plenty of pleasant definitions for "Toronto," naturally, they're not all nice.

Some people argue that it's overrated as a city and that the Toronto Maple Leafs "suck." Eek!

Perfect poutine and underage drinking… Is that you, Quebec?

Known by some as one of the most European-looking cities in Canada, apparently others remember it for the cigarettes and comedians. Who knew?

Somehow this definition of Calgary roasts Edmonton and Toronto simultaneously instead. Oops!

There is so much to unpack here, it's hard to know where to start. Edmonton weather can be "quite weird" though, although we're not going to comment on the hockey team.
