Defunct placenames are those no longer used officially.

Many populated places in New Hampshire once prospered and are now gone, subsumed by adjacent cities or renamed. Similarly, many geophysical features have had their names changed over time. This is an alphabetized list of the names of such places that once appeared on the maps, along with references to their present names, if any. Although no longer officially recognized, some of these may yet have local significance.
