Well, the name dates back to medieval times or so.

The settlement's only significant feature is a traffic sign with its name on it at which English-speaking tourists invariably stop to have their photograph taken. The sign is the most stolen street sign in Austria. A considerable portion of Fucking's budget is spent on replacing the stolen signs.

I think the sign under it makes it even better.

Though to make it ABSOLUTE hilarious, the town's name should be "Coming".

Vera

Nothing in modern German.



The village is known to have existed as "Fucking" since at least 1070 and is named after a man from the 6th century called Focko. "Ing" is an old Germanic suffix meaning "people"; thus Fucking, in this case, means "place of Focko's people".
