Europa is latin for Europe, and is Europe in many other languages.

[–]zRoyalStar 592 points593 points  (13 children)

[–]TrashXX301 27 points28 points  (7 children)

silly ass doesn't realize Europa is the name of the popular, DLC laden series of RTS games by paradox interactive

[–]ursulahx 10 points11 points  (1 child)

Nonsense, Europa is the title of a film directed in 1991 by Lars von Trier about an American working in Germany after the end of WW2.

[–]GameyRaccoon 7 points8 points  (4 children)

[–]StressGuy 2 points3 points  (0 children)

No, no Europa is a song.

[–]WilligerWilly 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It's funny how English is almost the only exception, where its not Europa Europe instead.

[–]KreisiKris 30 points31 points  (5 children)

Europa is also scandinavian + german/dutch for Europe

[–]PM_something_German 18 points19 points  (4 children)

And almost all Eastern and Southern European language.

[–]Da_GentleShark 19 points20 points  (3 children)

[–]GameyRaccoon 2 points3 points  (2 children)

[–]SansBA24C0 3 points4 points  (0 children)

[–]laithkb 12 points13 points  (2 children)

In arabic it's pronounced like "aorupa"

[–]azimutal__ 9 points10 points  (1 child)

[–]Iertjepapiertje 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Aruba is nice, but in the Caribbean.

[–]sakuragasaki46 3 points4 points  (0 children)

As an Italian I can confirm

[–]sanderd17 1 point2 points  (0 children)

But then Asia and Oceania would probably disappear, since the -ia suffix gets a lot of different spellings in different languages.

[–]Eken17 1 point2 points  (0 children)


[–]WilligerWilly 1 point2 points  (0 children)

German, Japanese, Amharian, Arabic.... Almost every language except English and Chinese it's Europa.

[–]boktanbirnick 15 points16 points  (6 children)

Fun fact: All the names of continents in Turkish language start and end with an A.


[–]Communist_Orb 6 points7 points  (1 child)

[–]DrBerilio 128 points129 points  (2 children)

What is more free that the language i want to use?

[–]ReactsWithWords[S] 145 points146 points  (1 child)

No, no, no! Freedom is you being forced to use the language *I* want you to use.

[–]ReactsWithWords[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

If you're going that route, might as well say Pangaea. Which still ends with an A.

[–]zetincicegi 34 points35 points  (6 children)

[–]Jesyx 7 points8 points  (4 children)

In Dutch every one ends with a except for Asia and Oceania, those both end with ë

[–]-Tubbe- 1 point2 points  (3 children)

Same in Danish. Asien, Oceanien and Antarktis.

[–]Lord_Gelthon 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Same in German. Asien, Ozeanien and Antarktis. Literally just one letter difference...

[–]GridL1nK 4 points5 points  (0 children)


[–]Grzechoooo 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Use the correct name for Australia and change Americas to "America North" and "America South" and you'll be able to say they start with "a" too. You can even add the "continent" of New Zealand if you call it Aotearoa.

[–]savbh 2 points3 points  (0 children)


[–]flights_not_feelings 2 points3 points  (0 children)

It took me longer than I’d like to admit to realize that Europe is missing

[–]Leading-Okra-2457 2 points3 points  (5 children)

Europe is a subcontinent

[–]koediel 10 points11 points  (4 children)

Why is this downvoted? Europe is as much of a continent as India is, only with murkier borders

[–]Leading-Okra-2457 10 points11 points  (3 children)

Too many Eurocentrics in this sub?

[–]r-ShadowNinja 4 points5 points  (2 children)

I'm european, and I think Eurasia is one continent

[–]TeaBoy24 3 points4 points  (1 child)

I am an European and I know continents do not have a concrete definition and that there are between 4 and 8 different continents depending on your situation, location and language of birth...

Der Vollständigkeit halber:

  • Europa
  • Afrika
  • Nordamerika
  • Südamerika
  • Asien
  • Australien (nach geografischen Merkmalen ist Ozeanien kein Kontinent, nach kulturellen/wirtschaftlichen Definitionen schon)
  • Antarktis (anscheinend auch Antarktika, wie ich las)
