The World’s Most Funny City Names

I suppose it’s possible that we’ve forgotten one or two of the world’s most funny city names. If you know this to be true, please leave a hint at what we’re missing in the comments below! And if you see one or many funny city names that are just dying for a tank top design, let us know that, too!

FUNNY CITY NAMES

  1. You’ve missed plenty of them. You should look up the cartographer STG (link below). They have maps pointing out rude names (for one type of map) in different parts of the world. You’re missing a famous Welsh place too (see below). In California there’s ‘Devil’s Golf Course’ and ‘Hell’s’ Gate’. There are cities called ‘Hell’ (I think you mentioned some but maybe didn’t get them all). There’s at least one place on Earth that the very bowels of the place has been likened to hell itself. I know there are many others. If you want a link to the cartographer: https://marvellousmaps.com

    They have more than just funny and rude names though. A few comments on some of the places though.

    First of all as for the German names: the -ing suffix refers to a family. And the ‘Fucking’ is not pronounced as in English. If you want the German word it’s ‘ficken’. Brits have stolen the sign many times, one citizen had to tell an Englishwoman ‘There are no Fucking postcards’. They even installed CCTV cameras to prevent people recording themselves having sex in front of the sign. There are other stories involving that town. There’s a town also called Fugging.

    Christmas Island on the other hand is a detention centre for refugees that’s part of Australia – and has atrocious conditions too but never mind that.

    You should look up the judgemental maps also. Some in UK: Little Snoring (Maybe you already got that though), Red Nose, Turkey Island, Booze, Jingle Pot, Elf House, Wreaths to name a few of many many more.

    Welsh place: Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch (it’s usually abbreviated Llanfair PG).

    Good list but you have a very long way to go …

    1. Oh there is a place on one of the moons of Pluto called ‘Mordor’. Wiki is wrong to say ‘trilogy’ and besides that Mordor pre-dates The Lord of the Rings (it’s in earlier Ages and even those who read The Lord of the Rings would know that but there are other tales too) but never mind those facts …

    2. Oh a few more German notes:

      Straße means ‘Street’ (and much like if you don’t have the umlaut you can add a letter ‘E’a after it you can just type ‘ss’ for ß though it’s not always used in place of ‘ss’). And indeed Romantische Straße means ‘Romantic Street’. And if you want to say ‘kiss’ in German (as a verb) it’s ‘küssen’. That’s the same as ‘kissing’ incidentally. That also applies to ‘ficken’: it means both ‘fuck’ and ‘fucking’.

      And it’s about time I get ready for bed so I’ll say ‘good night’ or if you prefer I’ll continue with German – ‘guten nacht’ (I love German in case you could not tell).

      1. *Gute nacht… An titbit with German.

        And whilst at it I’ll add my curiosity on the sign that really does look like a real sign that has ‘I <3 Fucking'. I find that very interesting because that's clearly not German. The source unfortunately does not show where in Fucking it is but all I can think of is that that those are flats (or houses or some living place) and maybe someone who also speaks English lives there. I have a comment on the place 'Beer' in England that I'll post separately (the etymology is not to do with alcohol actually).

    3. Hey Cody,

      You’ve given me so much to think about!

      Thanks for taking the time to share your expertise and the entomology lessons. As a Spanish minor, I’m obsessed with the roots of words though I’ll admit that this article could use another deep edit in light of your insights.

      If this is something you’d like to help assist with, I’d love to hear your proposal! Just email me at contact@tanksthatgetaround.com.

      Maddy

  2. On Beer in England the etymology is apparently OE (Old English) from the word ‘bearu’ which meant ‘grove’ referring to the original forestation there. The book is ‘A Dictionary of British Place-Names’; looking it up it appears to have thousands of names too. As for verifying OE translation there is a wonderful website: https://www.oldenglishtranslator.co.uk which is a trove for philologists and etymologists alike.
