In Response To: Quiz of Afrikan countries (selassielive)
I will give the first one to get people started.
1) What is the origin of the name for the country of Eritrea?
The Latin phrase Mare Erythraeum ("Red Sea") was used by Italy to describe its colonies in the horn of Africa. This later became Eritrea.
