In Italian M√ľnchen is written as the principality, so it's very confusing. If someone tells you: "Vado a Monaco (=I'm going to Monaco)" it's impossible non to ask him: "The German or the "French" one" :lol:

... or you say "Monaco di Baviera" right away. (Or something like "the bigger one", hehe.)

I was reminded of these two examples on Reddit today: Kagar and Repente. They're in Bradenburg, couldn't find an EBT profile for either of them. They didn't cross my mind before, but it's an old joke in Portuguese and Spanish-language sites.

"Repente" means "suddenly". "Cagar" means "to sullen" or, most often, "to take a shit".

Hehe, nice pair. ;) The reason why there is no profile, well, the places depicted on that map (Repente, Luhme, Flecken Zechlin, Dorf Zechlin, Kagar ...) are all part of the city of Rheinsberg. If I got a euro note in, say, Repente, I would enter it with Rheinsberg as the location. Maybe, just maybe, with an explanatory note re. Repente in the comment field ...

OK, thanks for that. Some towns don't come up in a search because they haven't been visited in a long time - as I learned in this very thread (site admins and location managers don't have this restriction, presumably) - but I see that's not the issue in these cases.
