Word for Wednesday – Fanny

As I am American, I know the word Fanny to mean the buttocks (butt, tush, ass). In Britain & Australia, the Fanny is known to mean lady parts (you get it). I also know the word “Fanny” to be a girl’s name.

http://www.sheknows.com/baby-names/name/fanny describes the name Fanny as follows:

  • Slavic Meaning:
    The name Fanny is a Slavic baby name. In Slavic the meaning of the name Fanny is:Free.
  • Teutonic Meaning:
    The name Fanny is a Teutonic baby name. In Teutonic the meaning of the name Fanny is: Free.
  • American Meaning:
    The name Fanny is an American baby name. In American the meaning of the name Fanny is: Free.
  • Latin Meaning:
    The name Fanny is a Latin baby name. In Latin the meaning of the name Fanny is:From France, or free one. Feminine of Francis. Famous bearers: British novelist Frances Burney and actress Frances Kemble.
  • English Meaning:
    The name Fanny is an English baby name. In English the meaning of the name Fanny is: free;. Derived from Frances. Famous bearer: the fictional heroine of John Cleland’s ‘Fanny Hill’.

So if Fanny means “Free”, in the American language the buttocks would be a free area. In Britain & Australia, the lady parts are free. Does that mean that we prostitute ourselves in different ways? Either way we are screwed.
