    The village is featured in the book Rude Britain: 100 Rudest Place Names in Britain. The book also includes town names like North Piddle, Pratt’s Bottom, Ugley, Titty Ho, Cocks and Spital-in-the-Street, plus streets such as Fanny Avenue and Willey Lane.

    Meanwhile, the US has the Grand Tetons.

      Don’t forget Whorehouse Meadow, also known, at least for a while or in some circles, as “Naughty Girl Meadow”.

        g`The name change existed only on government maps, and popular demand changed it back in 1981. There’s also Intercourse, Pennsylvania.

        The articles I checked this on said there was some confusion about who’s big idea it was to change the name in the first place. Some prissy mouthed (local? park dept. employee?) called it Naughty Girl Meadow when asked by the map maker, and the Park Department as an entity decided that it looked better on the maps that way and changed it on purpose according to another.
