[quoteost_uid0="Sa'ar Chasm"][color=#000000ost_uid0]Ahh, but "Romania" is derived from "Roman."

I have no idea what that proves.[/colorost_uid0][/quoteost_uid0]
[color=#000000ost_uid0]I would think, like "Germania," "Slovenia," "Britannia," and "Yugoslavia," the "ia" comes from a traditional feminization of land titles in accordance to the traditional indentification of the earth as being female, i.e. motherland. Like Gea.

Just a thought. ;P
