YEP - about 14 'ZINGERS.'

How many more can you name?







Places That End in ‘A”

© - Tom Hyland - 1/22/11

Just another ‘quirky’ idea
That sprang from my feeble brain ...

Used only my ‘grey matter’ to conjure up these names. Some are from ‘The Old World.’


CAUTION: There are several ‘Zingers’ - Can you spot them?


Africa - America - Arctica - Antarctica - Attica -
Asia - Australia - Alexandria - Alaska - Alabama - Appalachia -

Babylonia - Barcelona - Bavaria - Begonia -
Bora Bora - Brazilia - Byzantia -

California - Caledonia - Cassava - China - Conga -
Corona - Corsica - Cuba -

Dakota (North & South) -
Eureka - Euphoria - Eurasia -

Formosa - Georgia - Guiana - Helvetia - Hiawatha - Hysteria -
India - Indiana - Italia - Ithica - Ionia - Iowa - Iwo Jima -

Jakarta - Java - Joppa - Jambalaya - Judea - Kenya - Korea - Kosova -
La Jolla - Latvia - Liberia - Libya - Lusitania - Lycia -

Macedonia - Malta - Marrietta - Mauritania - Maya - Mecca - Mesa -
Minnesota - Mongolia - Monrovia - Mauna Loa - Montana -
Montezuma -

Namibia - Narnia - Nicea - Nigeria - Nimbia -
Nineva - Nivea - Nubia -

Oceania - Odea - Oklahoma - Ottawa -

Pacifica - Padua - Pamona - Pamplona - Panama -
Papua - Patagonia - Philadelphia -

Quechua - Riga - Roma - Romania - Russia -
Santa Barbara - Santa Clara - Santa Monica - Syria -

Tarawa - Tulsa - Thessalonica -
Utica - Verona - Victoria - Walla Walla -

Xom Xa Xia - Yuma -
Zona Pelludica -


ZINGERS :-

Begonia - a plant, not a place!
Byzantia - Not! Byzantium is correct!
Conga - a dance! Place is Congo!
Corona - a light, not a place!
Euphoria - a feeling, not a place!
Helvetia - female personification for Switzerland, not a place!
Hysteria - an emotional state, but not a physical place!
Jambalaya - a Cajun recipe, or dish, not a place!
Nineva - purely made-up, real place was Nineveh!
Nivea - a skin care product, not a place!
Odea - plural of odeum, an ancient building!
Quecha - a language, or Indian people!
Xom Xa Xia - I CHEATED - place in Viet Nam!
Zona Pelludica - sperm stopper envelope around ovum!


NOTE:
In checking some spellings, found a dozen more cities,
In Spain alone, that end in ‘a.’
