  1. 9/12 – but I take issue with you over Amerigo Vespucci! When was a country ever named after a first name as opposed to a surname? If the Vespucci idea is correct, America would be Vespuccia! The truth is that the continent was named in honour of a Bristol-based Welsh merchant named Richard Ap Meryk, who financed the expeditions of John Cabot.
