Well, there's as many names as there are places in Newfoundland & Labrador, that's for sure! In fact there's MORE names than there are places if one looks closely. For example one need only look to the popular body of water located in St. John's on which the annual regatta takes place. The official name is 'Quidi Vidi Lake'...but it's also known as 'The Pond', 'Kitty Vitty' and (phonetically) 'Quida Vida'! The different pronounciations depend upon where you 'longs at' or more explanatory, where you come from.
oh...and if anyone knows what 'Goobies' means, please let me know!
