this is for real - believe it or not

there are few towns or little cities in Europe with strange names (strange for English eyes or ears  only)

Just normal in German language.

 

one is **bleep**ing in Austria (GMaps link 5121 **bleep**ing, Austria)

an other is Titz in Germany (wikipedia link Titz)

 

In the past -and likely from now on too-  users have GMB issues  because of the name of their location.

What  can we recommend them if coming to here for help?

These still seem ok in Maps

 

Cockermouth but this does not Appear in Maps,  Cocks in Cornwall  but Google does not seem to mind Three Cocks in Wales

 

We have loads of towns with great names but not as naughty as those Austrians :)

Ha @Tim Capper it appears that either the filter has been eased already, or those place names are less rude (according to Nanny Bot) than the ones @Helmut Geissler provided :)
