Torpenhow Hill is a hill in Cumbria, England. It's name consists of the Old English 'Tor', the Welsh 'Pen', and the Danish 'How' - all of which translate to modern English as 'Hill'. Therefore, Torpenhow Hill would translate as hill-hill-hill hill and is thus twice as interesting as the Japanese Mount Fujiyama, which translates into English as Mount Mount.
