Rest room generally always at a service station or restaurant - tho men tend to ask for Mens room ...not sure what the fems do.

Bathroom is usually a larger space with shower etc. but kids tend towards it. Washroom seems ambiguous but lots use it even me.

Loo used, water closet not much that I know of .....toilet for some - no euphemism there....I've been places in the states where they look at you funny over "where's the restroom"

Australians get creative as usual

Toilet..
Dunny..
Crapper..
Thunderbox..
My son loves to call it a S h i t s h a c k .
or s hitter..
Loo.
Can..
but in the schools they try to limit it to Toilet...

From the site...


As an aside, I've always found it amusing that Canadians use the genteelism “washroom” to avoid the word “toilet” but then the word “toilet” is always there on the sign due the requirement for French translations. – nohat♦ Jan 9 '11 at 18:29
