    I got this weird question while watching Saint Seya, undubbed with spanish subtitles.
    In one scene, I read:
    "I will bring the armor back to Japan" (Regresaré la armadura de vuelta a Japón)
    But I know that Japan in japanese is not exactly that, but actually Nihon.
    So, Japan's true name is Nihon, not Japan.
    Of course I'm curious...

    Does your country has a different name in it's official language?

    Kanata. England would be Engla Land.

    Might as well do a video if different names for a country amuses you


    Anyway the UK would have to first start with what the UK is


    Anyway it is a fairly popular theme in Europe to have different names for places depending upon the histories of places involved, names of tribes, order in which things were discovered during empire days and relations at the time.

    Norge, or the old name Noreg.
    Or if you prefer, the Norse names Norðrvegr and Noregr. I quite like Norðrvegr :)
    The English name Norway probably comes from Norðrvegr, only simplified.

    You must have really pissed off the mods, for them to have limited your notifications.

    Chary said it's not related. I was wondering that too.
    Funny I don't get notifications on x65, P1ng, or Flame.
    Just Dinoh.
