奥地利有个小镇的名字叫Fucking,Fucking这个镇名已有800年悠久历史,最初很可能是有个叫Fuck的先生或家庭搬到当地定居,字尾的ing是后来加上去的,表示定居、安顿之意。由于在英文中含义不雅,该名字引起的烦恼显而易见。自从1945年大批英、美士兵奉派驻守该区后,当地居民逐渐知道镇名在英语中是什么意思,但直至2004年村民们仍表决反对改名。随着英语的普及,名字特殊的Fucking镇吸引了大批国际游客。西方游客还在镇牌前亲热作留念。至少13个价值250英镑的镇名路标被盗,还经常有半裸女子在旁边留影。忍无可忍的104名小镇居民将于本周就改镇名进行投票。

Fucking, Austria

Fucking is an Austrian village 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.

Located in Austria 4 kilometers from the German border.

Despite having a population of only 104, the village has become famous for its name in the English-speaking world. Its road signs are a popular visitor attraction, and were often stolen by souvenir-hunting tourists until 2005, when they were modified to be theft-resistant.
 
EtymologyIt is believed that the settlement was founded in the 6th century by Focko, a Bavarian nobleman. The existence of the village was documented for the first time in 1070 and historical records show that some twenty years later the lord was Adalpertus de Fucingin. The spelling of the name has evolved over the years; it is first recorded in historical sources with the spelling as Vucchingen in 1070, Fukching in 1303, Fugkhing in 1532, and in the modern spelling Fucking in the 18th century, which is pronounced with the vowel oo as in book. The ending -ing is an old Germanic suffix indicating the people belonging to the root word to which it is attached, thus Fucking means "(place of) Focko's people."
