It's still rude no matter how you spell it.

No, it's not rude in Sweden and Finland, because it doesn't have a bad meaning in Swedish or Finnish. Not everyone speaks English.

Everyone may not speak English, but I would appreciate it if native speakers of other languages cautioned us anglophones not to use words that in their languages are euphemisms for things like "rear-end"!

Actually, leananshae, "fanny" means "vagina" or "vulva" in Britain and Australia; the "rear-end" meaning is mainly limited to the U.S.

I would expect people to be a little more mature when they confront words and names from another language that sound rude in their own language.

Why should natives warn you? It's not an euphemism in our language (only a pretty name), but in yours. You know better.

And, by the way, it's pronounced "fun-nie", which isn't quite the same as fanny.
