bwaahhaaahhaa i cannot say this towns name!
 
With a name like that, it would attract me... if i was in the neighborhood.
 
I think it's a good name. I think that this town took that "what's your favorite verb?" campaign literally. :)
 
im just wondering.. is there a reason they called it that. Maybe it has a different meaning. Flo?
 
It 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,[5] Fugkhing in 1532, and in the modern spelling Fucking in the 18th century,[6] which is pronounced with the vowel oo as in book.[2] 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."[7] :D
 
Thanks for the history lesson. Always good to learn something new, and that cleared up a few of the questions in my head.
 
Yes, change it to "Fucking - Fucking". There that's better.
