UK, Australia, NZ. Fanny= pussy
Silly yanks, fanny= bum
They do seem to have a lot arse about. Even funnier when a girl says "i'll stick that in my fanny pack" which does make for a lot of shocked faces.
I piss myself laughing when that show "the nanny" comes on, at the start the song goes that she got kicked out and landed on her "fanny", ouch, how unfortunate.

Fanny is used in the U.K, Australia and N.Z as a slang for pussy. In Scandinavia, Fanny (also spelt Fanni/Fannie) is a very common girls name. But it's not pronounced like fanny (pussy), it's pronounced more like funny or fuh-nay.

You could only imagine how tough it would be for a girl named Fanni to come to Australia.
Emily: hey, what's your name?

Fanny: it's Fanny
Emily: oh my god, is it seriously Fanny?!

Fanny: yeah, but I'm from Sweden, where it's a very usual name. And it's pronounced more like funny.

Emily: oh okay I get it.
