Could the name of a street or location scare people off from getting a house? That’s exactly the issue with one house located in a village in Laholm Snorrslida which translates to ‘Penis Vagina’ in Swedish.
The house has been there for almost three years without a buyer despite being a bargain at 422,000 kronor.
This prompted some Swedish media to suggest that the reason it has failed to attract any buyers is its genitals-themed address., according to The Local
A Twitter user,spotted the house and shared it on his page on Sunday, July 5, 2015.
He wrote, “Whoa, slow down for a second. There’s a place in Sweden called Snorrslida.”

However, the estate agent, Henrik Håkansson , suggested that there is more to it than just the name of the village.
He said, “It is in a bad condition, the difficulties selling it are not related to the name.”
Name expert Annette Torensjö said the word lida means hill while Snorr was a common Viking name.
