Whats In A Name

The 150 or so residents of the Austrian village of ****ing have voted against changing the name, despite road signs being regularly stolen by Anglophiles.
Spokesman Siegfried Hoeppi said the name came from Herr **** and his family who settled in the area 100 years ago, while the suffix "-ing" means village or settlement. Locals didn't know the English meaning until Allied soldiers arrived in 1945.
Similar votes on name-change have taken place recently in Austrian towns of Wank am see, Vomitville, Windpassing. from Fortean Times
