This is no. 4 in a series of posts that is about funny business names that we saw. Since we are now living in continental Europe, from time to time we come across English names that makes us laugh. We caught some other funny names here that have an alternative meaning.

See the earlier posts Hilarity in names #1, #2  and #3, herehere and here.

Lucky Stiff Cuir, Chambery – leatherwear (cuir means leather in French)


The Mosquito, Ko Samui – it says “accommodation” above in neon blue –  so it is a hostel, is the name a warning ?


Les enfants terribles, Barcelona – (les enfants means the children)


Wormland, Munich – it is a clothing store not a pet or bait store.


Awfully chocolate, Hong Kong


Anti-Flirt, Paris


Bad Hotel zum Hirsch, Baden-Baden (Bad means spa in German)
