Funny names (when translated from other languages) Language Review

Being a trilingual person (Spanish, Swedish and English) who loves languages, I can't help but look at the billboards, bus stops, etc on my way to [insert place name here]. The funniest one I've seen is Tumba, which is a suburb south of Södermalm. You see, the thing is that tumba is the Spanish word for grave. No wonder the commuter trains having Tumba as their final destination are always empty compared to the other southbound trains....it's just that nobody wants to go there :D

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
