No more Fucking: The famous village of Fucking in Upper Austria is changing its name. The place with around 100 inhabitants, which had to complain about stolen place-name signs because of the same name with an obscene English term, will be called from January 1st Fugging.
Before that, there are still some administrative steps, said the mayor of the mother community of Tarsdorf, Andrea Holzner, on Thursday the broadcaster “OE24”. The decision of the Tarsdorf municipal council from mid-November was published on the official notice board of the municipality in the Braunau am Inn district at the beginning of the week.
According to media reports, there have been frequent considerations by the suffering Fuckinger to change their place name in recent years. The village appears on international lists of funny place names and place signs have been stolen again and again. On the other hand, some residents used the attention last autumn for symbolic purposes and formed word games with posters with particularly drastic demands around the place-name sign. (sda / dpa)
