Innocent or rude: What’s in a Name?

Innocent or rude: What’s in a Name?

A rose by any other name would smell as sweet according to Shakespeare ΓÇô but when it comes to websites a name is often the first thing we look at before deciding to dip into its content.

With this in mind we thought we would highlight some of our favourite websites that have ΓÇ£accidentallyΓÇ¥ ended up with an unfortunate name – which may lead browsers to misinterpret what they are only one click away fromΓǪand yes they all appear to be genuine!

#1. www.childrenswear.co.uk

Not in fact a site dedicated to profanity spitting minors, this online store actually specialises in providing suits and party frocks for children.

#2. www.accesstherapists.com

Possibly the most unfortunate name in my opinion, this website is actually dedicated to helping those in need of assessment from an Occupational or Physical therapist.

#3. www.penisland.net

Despite still being phallic in nature, the products on offer from this website are actually bulk order custom designed pens for business.

#4. www.WTF.org

Despite ΓÇ£text speakΓÇ¥ seemingly taking over the world, this website is not dedicated to promoting a widely used abbreviation ΓÇô but in fact the home of the World Taekwondo Federation.

But while these choices may have been deliberate (if slightly shortsighted), spare a thought for residents of the Cook Islands in the South Pacific who, through no fault of their own, have been assigned the unfortunate domain name of .co.ck.
