Fayetteville, N.C.'s red light district was nationally known. It was located in downtown Fayetteville on Hay Street. Many of the sexually oriented businesses had all Asian girl staffs. Fayetteville was nicknamed Fayettenam because the sex shops resembled the red light district in Saigon.

During the Vietnam War, Hay Street provided a Wild West atmosphere. Hay Street was talked about by soldiers all over the world. Illegal drug use, hookers, strippers and pimps were present when young men nervously awaited their futures as soldiers fighting in Vietnam.

A nickname used in the United States for any trashy or undesirable place with a name incorporating "Fayette." Examples include Fayetteville, NC; Fayetteville, TN; and Fayette County, PA. To qualify as a "Fayettenam", the area is usually required to be poor and have a high concentration of drugs, excessive drinking, and general depravity. Many "Fayettenam" areas are in the Appalachian region.

A nickname for Fayetteville, Tennessee, a bizarre town full of bad DNA, mean spirited Jerry Springer-hopefuls, crackheads, drive-by's, children gettin slapped across walmart and supermarket aisles, auctions and tractor pulls...
"That poor meth-head up in Fayettenam pissed himself in front of the Dairy Queen in front of God and everybody, and started ravin about how Reading Rainbow used to get his motor runnin and how he screwed one of Loretta Lynn's back-up singers in 78'."
