Saint Lucia

Saint Lucia is the only country in the world named after a woman.The country was named after Saint Lucy of Syracuse by the French. I think, women should also get the same respect as men, I am totally opposed to patriarchy. ??

I wonder, though, how many countries are named after men and how many are named because of what they are like or where they are? (Japan, Nihon, means "source of the sun" so east of China.)

Well, I think more countries should be named after women. Women definitely help build, maintain, populate, and run countries.

Well, I am also against patriarchy, the day we start to enjoy fairy tails, where Cinderella defends and saves her prince charming from the villains, you know, we are there!!.

The journalist who wrote the article surely forgot "Marie-Galante", that is also a French Island, the Island was named by Colombo from his Flagship Santa Maria.
