"Medjugorje"

Medjugorje sounds like the name of some monster from outer space that would fight godzilla, or something?

Might sound like that to you, but there isn't anything monstrous in it for a Slavic speaker. Of course, Slavic languages do sound monstrous to many, apparently :lol:

Anyway, Međugorje means literally 'a place between the mountains'. 

među = between (adjective)

gora = mountain (noun, singular), gore = mountains (noun, plural), gorje = more mountains, a mountain chain (collective noun) 

So it rings quite pleasantly in a Slavic ear :D , reminding of naturally sheltered places in landscape.

I like outer space monster better.

Medju: Hook hands

gorje: Claw belly

Forgive me, but there's apparently certain cultural difference between us, so would you be so kind to explain it a little for me? 

It certainly seems like you're trying to be funny, but it looks just repetitive to me. Is repetition on its own considered funny in your cultural circle?
