Placenames...

This idea came to me just now.
I was searching for an image of me for a background to a slide, and this image popped up.
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...
