no, it just means God's graces
there are many funny place names in Germany

for example the city of Worms
or thisworld famous village in Austria

but I don't think that's the purpose of this topic :)

you shouldn't rely on Google Maps if you're driving at the Chinese border. The whole of the street maps of the PRoC is 500m off to the east, so at the state border there are some overlappings

https://maps.google.de/maps?ll=40.10994 ... 78924&z=15" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;
https://maps.google.de/maps?ll=22.21076 ... 98017&z=14" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;
(compare maps view with satellite view)
