Meanings Behind Sydney Suburb Names

Have you always been wondering the meanings behind the name of the suburb you live in? Huh? Well. Maybe not, but anyway. During my boring hour of the day, I found these webpages with a list of Sydney suburb names, as well as the meaning behind it.

For example, these are the meanings of some Eastern suburbs.

derived from Aboriginal word "koojah" meaning "a stinking place" (probably rotting seaweed)
named after the Royal Borough of Kensington, London
replaced South Kensington in honour of Sir Charles Kingsford Smith
from an Aboriginal word meaning "like thunder" describing the pounding surf
named after the town of Randwick in Gloucestershire, England

Does that give more meaning to your life? :)
