This idea came to me just now.
I wondered why for a second then realised that my name: ALAN is contained within the name 'ZeALANd' in New Zealand.
I started wondering whether there were other names hidden in the names of countries or cities.
Can you find and suggest any other 'placenames' ?
Perhaps this could be set as an alternative homework activity. If nothing else, it will get students looking at an atlas...
