Amusing Names

France has a number of villages and towns that have amusing names or bring out the French fondness for word play – les jeux des mots. Condom in the Gers department being the one that is easy to spot if you are an English speaker. Other names include the villages of Poisson – fish and Avril – April who are sistered. In French Poisson de Avril means April Fools. So it’s like the sistering of the villages of April and Fools. By the way there is a village named Folles, the French feminine adjective for crazy.
