What's in a name?

A friend sent me to this map. If you're interested in the origins of country names, it's pretty cool!

Thanks to the Canadian Government's commercials of years past, I already knew that we're named for an Aboriginal name for "village".

For me, I'd like to go back to the land of wood and water, it's awesome! (i.e. Jamaica)
