OK, if you don't know how to spell something, then you get the answer wrong. This isn't a difficult concept. Learn to spell the answer correctly, take the quiz again, and improve your knowledge. Why should someone be rewarded for an incorrect answer?!? Good grief!

These quizzes aren't (generally) spelling tests - and, in conversational pronunciation, the second "r" is not stressed, if it's pronounced at all.

Having the knowledge and knowing how to spell something are two different things, and the first is far more important than the second. We generally test the first.

Too religious. Seriously, 60% of the answers! How can we claim a separation of church and state when so many of our cities' names blatantly promote christian ideals?

Adding the clues I think actually deprived me of one. When I saw "common name" I was thinking of common human names... like... Pierre, Shannon, Paris, Troy, etc. I got it both time I took the quiz before but missed it this time.
