15. 1960: Dullsville
Don't you just love the word "dullsville?" It was added in 1960.  That makes sense, since we associate other words ending with "ville" with that decade as well. In the '60s, you could add ville to just about any word, like squaresville or disasterville. But dullsville has stayed around, and it's even been reinvented with the cartoon Sponge Bob. Dullsville is a town in the episode "Plankton Retires."
