Llanberis 5/11/2023, 1:34 AM by Anonymous User
The Beris in Llanberis isn't a corruption of Peris, it's just Peris after having been mutated due to treiglo (A grammatical rule in Welsh where the first letter of a word is changed depending on the word before it in order to help with pronunciation; a bit like the word a becoming an in English)

Personal Impression: Corinthe would make a good first name. It sounds feminine and strong.
Cyprus 12/16/2022, 7:27 PM by Anonymous User
Personal Impression: Cyprus stands well as a first name. It not only evokes a idyllic Mediterranean island, it also is a homonym for cypress, which is a tree. This makes Cyprus have a very natural feel. It fits in with the growing popularity of nature-based names, while having a spelling that seems a bit more dignified and name-like.

Verenigde Staten 4/7/2022, 7:36 AM by Anonymous User
Dutch form of United States. It is literally a direct translation of the country's name, since it consists of the Dutch adjective verenigde meaning "united" combined with the Dutch noun staten meaning "states".Note: the official name of the country is United States of America, which translates to Dutch as Verenigde Staten van Amerika. The country is never called that in Dutch, however. It is only ever called Amerika, Verenigde Staten and VS (pronounced as vay-es). The latter is an abbreviation of Verenigde Staten, which makes it equivalent to US, the English abbreviation of United States. Please note that VSA (which would be equivalent to USA) is hardly ever used, if at all. It is a technically correct abbreviation, but it just never became mainstream.- (in Dutch)

Medina 2/10/2022, 6:43 AM by Anonymous User
It's interesting to note, that the main river of the Isle of Wight is called Medina.
Although in this case «The name Medina comes from the Old English Meðune meaning "the middle one", and the current pronunciation was first recorded as 'Medine' in 1196.»
According to Wikipedia, «"Medina" was an older name for Newport which has been preserved in the River Medina.»Also, Medina was a non-metropolitan district with the status of a borough on the Isle of Wight in England from 1974 to 1995.

The "Usage" of this name lists "Late Greek". However, the "Scripts" section of this name lists, "Ἰνδονησία (Ancient Greek)". Meanwhile, the entry for "India" lists "Ancient Greek" as a usage, and the "Scripts" section for "India" lists, "Ἰνδία (Ancient Greek)". Thus, something isn't consistent across this place names websites. Therefore, I think that the usage of Ancient Greek should be added to this name, the Ancient Greek script can be kept, and I'm not sure what to do about the Late Greek usage.Sources:
