What’s in a name?

There’s an Austrian village with a very interesting name, to English speakers at least. Tourists pose to have their photos taken next to the sign bearing the name of the village, and the authorities have to replace the sign several times a year because it gets stolen that often.

I wonder if “Washington” means something interesting in German.
