I was going through the etymology of some place-names at work today and I found out that the name 'Benton' (a surname, but still) means 'town near bent grass'.

Because of course Benton would be bent.

Is it unreasonable that I should find this so damn funny?


ETA - I've just re-read this post, and it makes my job sound really strange. I'm an archaeologist, ok? Looking up place names is a regular thing. No, really.
