Living in Ass-Hand

On the way home from Kawasaki, we passed the station 「尻手」("Shitte"). This is written with the Chinese characters for "ass" and "hand". So there are people who live in a place called "Ass-Hand". I sometimes wonder if Japanese native speakers think of these kinds of place names just as names or if they think it is funny.
