    Officials in a German town named Kotzen, or Puke, have voted against changing its name.

    The town was created when the villages of Kotzen, Kriele and Landin merged last year.

    The name has a tradition of putting a smile on the faces of visitors, writes the Maerkische Oderzeitung.

    They were united under the offensive Kotzen name, and residents were given until the end of June to pick a different name.

    However, it appears they were unable to come up with an agreeable alternative and it was left to officials to make a final decision.

    In the end they voted 5-3 against a name change.
