Which brings us to Douglas Adams "The meaning of Liff"
Where I come from, Liff (also known as oot beh*) has a specific meaning quite separate from the village. It was for a long time the location of the Asylum at West Green.

*You have to be Dundonian to pronounce that properly. It belongs to the same phonetic group as "eh'll hae a peh" (=I'll have a pie)

So when we get people coming here seeking asylum, we can point them to Liff, UK.

My local asylum turned into luxury flats with a large park. It's one of the best places to see bluebells round here.
