Dull, in Scotland, is now sister-city to Boring, Oregon. Really.

So true for every country...

let's list some of the strange, expletive, raunchy, or downright strange ones for Germany:

Barby which is pronounced exactly like the doll
Pforzheim: sounds similar to Fart's- home
Darmstadt : Intestine-city

No.2 on my list:
Wixhausen = Jerk-off-houses

and <drum-roll>
No. 1:

Ficken = f****ing

@KofodDane Well, all countries have cities with weird names. For instance, there is a place in Sweden called Äs (pronounced "Ass")

Sister America is surprisingly good looking for a plastic.

It gets worse. We even name towns after our own states. California, Missouri, to name one.

Also, I had no idea we have 22 Springfields. I always thought we had 4.

@KofodDane I know it's kind of weird, but honestly America is so large geographically and has such a widespread population that naming all the towns are kind of hard because we don't want to be too repetitive (We have 22 cities named Springfield alone) and we aren't creative enough to think of our own names so we start borrowing names from other countries and cities in other countries like Paris Texas, Cairo Illinois, China Texas, etc. etc. We have a TON of towns is the point I'm driving at.

Well, also, here in Denmark, we have Tarm(gut), Tønder(barrels), Mørke(darkness), Løsning(solution), Thisted(which sounds like ''Tissted'' which, directly translated, would mean ''peeplace''), Søllested(measlyplace), Tim(like the name ''Tim''), Skive(slice), Benløse(legless), Stenløse(stoneless), Sengeløse(bedless), Lolland(which is an island), Anholt(sounds like ''anholdt'' which means ''arrested'', is also an island), Fanø(fan island, is sometimes used instead of ''fanden'' which is a Danish swear-word, is also an island), Frederiks(Frederik's), Lem(hatch?), Odder(otter), Give(give), Brande(fires), Blåvand(blue water), Ølgod(ale good), Gram(gram), Haarby(hairtown), Ringe(call/poor), Marstal(Mars number), Tureby(tourtown), Lillerød(little red), Birkerød(birch red), Greve(Count, as in Count Dracula), Stege(roast), and many many others.
Sorry for making this long list, but I just felt like it^^; Also, there are many, many other weird names here;P
Btw, there's actually a town/city in France called Nice:XD:
