  Zzyzx, California - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The name Zzyzx, pronounced /ˈzaɪˌzɪks/ (pronounced as "Zeye-zix" with the accent on the first syllable, rhyming with "Isaac's", not "physics"), was given to the area in 1944 by Curtis Howe Springer, claiming it to be the last word in the English language.
He used Zzyzx until 1974, when he was arrested by the United States Marshals for misuse of the land as well as alleged violations of food and drug laws, and the land was confiscated by the government.
Zzyzx was approved as a place name by the United States Board on Geographic Names on June 14, 1984.

Zzyzx (pronounced Zy-Zix, to rhyme with Isaacs) Mineral Springs and Health Resort was a town created out of nothing in 1944 by one of the Mojave Desert's most fabled characters, Curtis Howe Springer.
His enduring inspiration, though, was to name his headquarters Zzyzx, figuring that by having the last word in the phone book, he'd have the last word in his business.
Zzyzx was a thriving commercial enterprise by the 1950s, but by the late 1960s, state and federal authorities had begun to complain when Springer started marking lots and letting people who donated large sums build houses on them.
