To accomodate UK usage and spelling both "oestrogen" and "billion" should also be accepted.

No longer in the UK as you say, but many countries still use the long-scale form - see this map for the usage of each.

I think that the countries that have a problem with these two scales are the ones that speak Portuguese, Brazil and Portugal for starters use different scales...

6 is to million as 12 is to two million makes more sense, in my opinion. But I guess we're doing analogies, no math.

I wouldn't call it "Italian champagne". Though it's very much like Champagne, Champagne can only be named so if it's from specific French regions while Prosecco can only be named so if it's from specific Italian regions.

Please also accept David for the Crockett question - that was his real name, and is how he was generally known throughout his lifetime. The "Davy" name mostly came into prominence after his death, as a result of the myths and legends (and later movies, TV shows, etc.), that grew up about him.

The best relationship between 1 million and 6 that you could come up with is "1 million divided by 166666.666667 almost equals 6?"
