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!

Toronto

Urban Dictionary

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!

Urban Dictionary

At least there's a compliment in with this insult. Regardless of how hard people actually do work in the city, there are no arguments when it comes to BeaverTails. Yum!

Urban Dictionary

Montreal

Urban Dictionary

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

Calgary

Urban Dictionary

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

Edmonton

Urban Dictionary

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.

Urban Dictionary, known for its no-nonsense descriptions of people, places and phrases, has been popping up all over social media in the past couple of weeks — and B.C. did not escape.

For those who aren't familiar with the website, you type your search phrase in the search bar (just like Google) but the entries are submitted by members of the public and can be unflattering, to say the least.

Multiple Ontarians have posted hilarious, yet extremely relatable, videos of dealing with the popular highway and you just have to laugh.
