See under hell.

Name or name component of numerous individual locations in the German-speaking area. Examples of the latter are Gutenhölle, Hahnhölle, Höllenberg, Höllenbrand, Höllenpfad, Höllenweg, Katzenhölle, Langhölle, Mainhölle, Muckerhölle, Ritterhölle, Schlosshölle, Schönhölle, Vor der Hölle and Würzhölle. The name has less to do with the place of horror, but is mostly derived from the Old High German "Helda" for slagheap or steep slope comparable to the English "Hill". However, it can also indicate hot climatic conditions.
