Reasons why the village changed its name

The village has a name that goes around the world for its uniqueness

One of the very fed up residents has shared in a journal,

“I’m sure each of them thinks they’re the first to think of it but believe me they’re not. We’ve grown very tired of it and we’re doing something about it. We are a very traditional community and we find this sort of public display shocking."

There are not only those who have sex by the signs but tourists also steal them from time to time and local authorities have to make use of theft-resistant concrete as they put up replacements. And for those unknown, F**king village always has to spend 300 euros on a new sign. The villagers, also known as F**kingers, have allegedly “had enough of visitors and their bad jokes”, as per Die Presse – am Austrian daily.

It is also known that foreign pranksters also have been called locals and ask them in English, “Is That F**king?” before laughing about it themselves and hanging up. Savvy businesses have decided to make money on this attention and even made Christmas cards, postcards, and more lately, a F**king beer.

In 2018, Pornhub even offered the F**king residents free premium access to the website. Other towns with similar kinds of names also get the privilege, Pennsylvania's Big Beaver or Germany’s Titz. Minutes from the council meeting showed that the village which is 215 miles east of Vienna will be retitled from 1 January 2021.

The F**king village also has many picturesque places but they are all overshadowed by the name

Andrea Holzner, the mayor of the municipality the village belongs to, Tarsdorf, said, “I can confirm that the village is being renamed. I really don’t want to say anything more – we’ve had enough media frenzy about this in the past.”

The story behind its original name

F**king village which is right next to the German border was officially inhabited in around 1070. However, it is suggested that a sixth-century Bavarian nobleman named Focko was the person that founded this settlement. A map from 1825 also used the Fuking spelling. For those unknown, just across the Bavaria border in Germany is another village named Petting.

Now everyone is bidding adieu to the exotic name and "thanking it for its service"

It is explained that F**ing is the place where the Focko family lives. Obviously, for many years, the locals did not care about this because they did not use English in their daily life and after World War II, British and American soldiers stationed near Salzburg suddenly noticed the name of the village. They started to come together to F**king to take pictures with signs in the village.
