I remember doing a school project on him in the 5th grade. He is why the Americas are called the Americas

by Anonymous 3 months ago

Groundbreaking research there.

Bad PR. Next time, Amer should hire a better agency.

by Konopelskiverdi 3 months ago

Or Washington Irving. He did wonders for Columbus and Paul Revere.

by Worried-Set4918 3 months ago

Baffling to me. America is literally named after him and they don't have a clue.

Do you know who any other country is named for? I certainly don't.

by jmaggio 3 months ago

One country is not the same as two entire continents.

by Anonymous 3 months ago

Ok then tell me who the other continents are named for.

by jmaggio 3 months ago

We talk about him enough to know who he was.

by Exotic-Tip-8036 3 months ago

His name is too hard to pronounce.

by Brantlockman 3 months ago

You can simply call him ‘Murgo

by Anonymous 3 months ago

I prefer Pucci.

by Anonymous 3 months ago

Probably not a lot of talk about Vasco DaGama either.

Glad his first name was used. Can you imagine the song: 🎶 God Bless Vespucci…land that I love 🎵 It just doesn't sound right.

by Anonymous 3 months ago

Ahh, a name we're all familiar with whether we know it or not.

Who is this (I'm assuming) legend?

by Ecstatic-Employee 3 months ago

And to think, if his parents named him Josh instead...... Would we be living in Joshland?

by Anonymous 3 months ago

Josh is short for Joshua meaning "God is deliverance" so we are lucky it's not named somewhat after him. But almost every state/country is named after a person/persons when you break it down

by Anonymous 3 months ago

In some countries of LATAM and in Spain, you can find many streets named after him

by Anonymous 3 months ago

Maybe because he was a slave trader. He didn't name the continents. A German cartographer used the name on his charts, and it was picked up through popular usage.

by Anonymous 3 months ago

Wait... so America is America cause some dude wrote his name on a map; which another dude just said "meh", and named the continent that on his map?

by Ok_Flamingo_8594 3 months ago

Correct. That's history for you, much more incidental than most people realize.

by Glad_Football5943 3 months ago

WWI (and possibly WWII, the much acclaimed sequel) could have been prevented if the Archduke's driver hadn't taken a wrong turn.

by Anonymous 3 months ago

It's not that incidental

by Anonymous 3 months ago

I learned about him in school.

by danikapowlowski 3 months ago

I do. People aren't that interested most of the time.

by Anonymous 3 months ago

That's a nice Italian name.

by Murky_Set_8842 3 months ago

I mean what a stupid first name, right?

by Anonymous 3 months ago

He was excellent at shuffleboard.

by Key-Sign-3110 3 months ago

They should have named his discovery Vespuccistan.

Wasn't she at The Oscars?

Except on The Vespucci Hour on Explorer FM Ameriiiigo, he got there first!
