Imagine what would happen if your hometown’s name is “FUCKING”?! Well, there’s an Austrian village which so happens to be named “Fucking” and they have been demanding the government to change their villages name to “Fugging” for a very long time but unfortunately the name “Fugging” has already been taken. You can find the Fucking Town in the municipality of Tarsdorf, in the Innviertel region of western Upper Austria. The village is 33 kilometres (21 mi) north of Salzburg, 4 kilometres (2.5 mi) east of the German border. The settlement was believed to be found by a Bavarian nobleman named, Focko and the villages name “Fucking” has already evolved from several spellings but it simply means “Place of Focko’s People” whereby the “ing” after the word “Fuck” is an old Germanic suffix indicating the people belonging to the root word to which it is attached. Now imagine your address been written in letters? “Fucking, Austria”?!
