Readers of the BBC's news site have helped to compile a list of newspapers with distinctive titles.

They were moved to send in their favourites after noting the blandness (and rather touching simplicity) of News Corporation's choice of title for its iPad paper, The Daily.

I've rearranged the list and added to it. I'd guess that most of you know most of them. But there will inevitably be some discoveries. And more, of course, are welcome...

Britain and Ireland

Impartial Reporter - Enniskillen, Co Fermanagh (once impartially in favour of Protestantism and Unionism; now, more even-handed)

The Banbury Cake – Oxford

The Keswick Reminder - Cumbria

The Royston Crow - Hertfordshire

Your Leek Paper - Staffordshire

The Southport Visiter - Lancashire (further up the coast, The Visitor in Morecambe knows how to spell)

The Falmouth Packet – Falmouth, Cornwall (named after the mail-carrying packet ships)

The Arran Banner - Isle of Arran (named after a variety of potato)

Gone, but not forgotten...
The Skibbereen Eagle - Co Cork (famous for a leading article that said it was "keeping an eye on the Czar of Russia" over his expansionist designs on China)

Oddities...
West Highland Free Press - Isle of Skye (the point being, it isn't free - it's 65p)

The same is true of the Doncaster Free Press (70p) and the Bucks Free Press (55p)

United States

The Times-Picayune - New Orleans

Unterrified Democrat - Linn, Missouri

The Pantagraph - Bloomington, Illinois (from the Greek panta and grapho, combining to mean "write all things")

Carlisle Mosquito - Carlisle, Massachusetts

The LEO Weekly - Kentucky (aka the Louisville Eccentric Observer)

The Hawkeye - Burlington, Iowa

Boulder Daily Camera – Colorado

The Canton Repository - Stark County, Ohio

Cleveland Plain Dealer - Ohio

The Toledo Blade - Ohio

The Youngstown Vindicator – Ohio

The Commercial Appeal - Memphis, Tennessee

Intelligencer Journal/Lancaster New Era - Pennsylvania

The Sacramento Bee - California

Labette Avenue - Kansas

Hunterdon County Democrat - the point being that it favoured the Republican party

Gone, but not forgotten...

Memphis Press-Scimitar - Tennessee
The Tombstone Epitaph - still publishes special editions

Australia

The Barrier Daily Truth - Broken Hill, Australia

The Bunyip - Gawler, South Australia

Sunraysia Daily - Mildura, Northern Victoria, Australia (Hat tip to Murray Hedgcock - glad to see you're still with us!)

Canada

The Casket – Antigonish, Nova Scotia

The Kingston Whig Standard - Ontario

Saskatoon StarPhoenix - Saskatchewan

The Grand River Sachem - Ontario (sachem = highly-ranked chief)

The Northern Pen - Newfoundland

The Miner & News - Kenora, Ontario

The Charlottetown Guardian deserves a mention, not for its name, but for its slogan: "covers Prince Edward Island like the dew". Pity that the Charlottetown Patriot is no longer with us.

Caribbean

Granma – Cuba. Named after the yacht that carried Fidel Castro and his comrades from Mexico to launch the revolution

The Gleaner - Jamaica

Japan

The Mainichi Daily - "Mainichi" in Japanese means daily so the paper is the Daily Daily.

And can this be true?

Egregious Hippogriff - an alleged British school publication
