Speaking of long names, we may want to use some from here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Longest...sh#Place_names

I like Mamungkukumpurangkuntjunya Hill, a Pitjantjatjara word meaning "where the devil urinates"!

I'd be more concerned about the future of test cricket.

I'm also surprised we haven't been to the French town of Condom.

Given the more widespread social use, in the English language, of the word condom, it is interesting to note that the town is located on the river Baïse; baise, without the diaeresis, is a French vulgarism for a sex act. In French language however, a condom is usually called préservatif and seldom condom. The city is a popular target for street sign stealing tourists. It is also home to a museum of famous population-control devices.

This article from the BBC is a good one about Dorset town names: http://www.bbc.co.uk/dorset/content/..._feature.shtml

Dorset is home to such great names as Shitterton and the Piddle Valley.
