Places With The Most Outrageous Names In The World

We often come across giggle inducing names of people, because of the capricious whim of their parents. Not just people, there are hundreds of places around the world which have been baptized bizarrely.

Here are some examples of places with the most outrageous names!

Intercourse, Pennsylvania

A beautiful village garnished by Amish farms all around, Intercourse is considered to be the heart of the Amish country in Lancaster county. Also, a famous tourist destination in Pennsylvania, there will always be a good perverted joke on hand with such a name. We reckon, it will be much more fun to live in this town.

A small hamlet, located southeast of Gravesend in Kent, Thong has absolutely no connection with any kind of undergarments.

 Chicken, Alaska

This egg-ceptionally remote town was definitely not named after the animal., if anything else. Chicken is a community that was found on gold mining and is ostensibly, one of the few thriving gold rush towns in Alaska.

Middelfart means “Central passage” in Danish. The translation is even more unfortunate! A town in Central Denmark, there are in fact, a lot of attractions and activities to indulge here. In Middlefart, you can find forests, beaches, biking trails, art museums and galleries, lush green gardens, water sports and lot more!

Fucking, Austria

This sign board has been stolen by tourists many times! Sigh! A village in Austria that was founded in the 6th century by a noble named Focko, hence, fucking means “”place of Focko people”

Hell, Norway

Unlike the burning ”Hell”, this surely is a place where hell freezes over as low as -25 degrees making it one of the coldest places on earth.  A sleepy post town with the basics such as a grocery store, a train station, a grill and a gas station, the word hell actually means luck here. However, the name was derived from the overhanging cliff caves in a place known as hellir in old Norse.

Pooh, India

Errr..what’s in a name? Aka Spuwa, Pooh is a small town in Himachal Pradesh. Unfathomable as you pass along the winding mountain rocky roads, all of a sudden there’s Pooh, a small settlement with pretty multihued houses up on the mountains.

A bike ride to Pooh can be a veritable treat to your adrenaline. Pick a guest house for a cozy stay and explore nature and wildlife all around you.
