Last fun with languages

I have had a little fun with foreign languages lately so to be fair I wondered if there were a few amusing place names in English. A brief search has turned up whole web sites devoted entirely to this so I am just going to highlight a few that I liked the most:

Balls Green and Clap Hill, both in Kent
Bell End, near Bromsgrove
Brown Willey in Cornwall
Cockplay, Northumberland
Fanny Barks, Co Durham
Feltham Close, Hants, and the list goes on and on.

But my favourite has to be this one from Orkney. One day I am going to go there and have my photograph taken just to the right of this sign.
