Reply to "WHATS IN A NAME?"

Good Morning Ananth,
Where on earth do find such a wealth of information.
your last half dozen place names remind me of an occasion when I was visiting the company headquarters in Tuebingen South Germany and I was asked to pick up some UK visitors from the airport in Stuttgart and entertain them for the evening.within thirty seconds of meeting them I realised that they were upper crust and I would have to be on my best behaviour, no beer hall that evening!! I decided to take them to an upmarket restaurant on the Schwabische alb, on the way we passed a town boundary sign which read "Wankheim" (heim in German means home)The lady sitting beside me chuckled and said "what an interesting home life these people must have"The ice was broken and they enjoyed the beer hall.
Keep Smiling Razzer
John
