Best Neighborhood Name

Whipper Barony

Staff Pick

Charleston loves neighborhood names that are more than a mouthful — Ansonborough, Mazyck-Wraggborough, and Cannonborough-Elliottborough. But whatever happened to crisp, snappy names — you know, ones that pop? Enter Whipper Barony. You’ll find that neighborhood just a ways up Rivers Avenue. It’s located just past the old Navy Hospital. Now, we don’t know too much about the neighborhood, but dang, if we don’t like the name, whatever the heck it means. Whip it good. —Chris Haire
