The inhabitants of the village of Turtmann in the Upper Valais are nicknamed Hopschla – the Valais word for frogs. Before the course of the Rhone was changed in the 19th century, the former marshland in the valley floor near Turtmann was home to countless frogs who could be heard croaking noisily at night. The frogs went but the name remained. That is why the local in Turtmann like to call their cheese "Hopschil".
