That's interesting and something I would have never known if it wasn't for flight simulation!
Even more interesting, that VOR takes its name from a creek that it is near in WY; which, according to wikipedia, has several legends as to the origin of the name.

The OMs for runways 10 and 09R @ KORD are DEANA and LANSE... the typical call to tower is just "inside" the OM.. so it would be "Tower XYZ is with you inside lanse/deana. All I can say is i'd rather be inside Deana! This is the rather dirty joke amoungst Chicago area pilots.

Also in Philly....the RNAV Z RWY 9R approach has the waypoints DUWEE CHETM ANDHWJamil Fraser
There's a part of Interstate 76 in Philadelphia that's known as the Schuylkill Expressway (as it follows the Schuylkill River, which is pronounced School Kill, but blended and with our funny accent). The BOJID1 arrival to PHL (the part for landing East) ends with SCOOL KYILL EXPRS WHEYYThe JIMGE2 arrival from the south that overflies New Jersey ends with JRSEY PIIKE EASEY PAASS (NJ Turnpike, which uses EZ PASS auto toll transponders)

I always wondered about the guys that actually picks those names.. something like "Ok, boys, this is THAT part of the day, to pick the names of new Waypoints!" I mean, seriously, some names, even more in America, are so random!I think it's something automatic, like "Waypoint-O-Matic 3000 Plus", "Clike here to generate new names" or something hahaha.Near my hometown, there are some cool ones: JUICEOGRECAKECheers.

Fans of the Bard's writing will like the first two, if you prefer your literature a bit more pictorial, then the second two will be more up your street:Note: for anyone who doesn't get it, Shakespeare of course wrote Hamlet, Prince of Denmark, and two popular children's comics published in the UK are the Dandy and the Beano.Al
