If you do that, then you need to accept Indian Ocean for Oman-India, Yemen-Somalia, and Saudi Arabia-Iran, at a minimum.

Couldn't find the English name for the sea between France and Britain... as a French, I felt ashame for not knowing it but then I saw "ENGLISH Channel"!!! Sacrebleu! What the hell? We're not calling it French Channel here, and even less English Channel... Damn Rosbifs!

The English Channel isn't actually a channel, so La Manche is at least as correct. Then again, it's been named both ways for centuries and the quiz already gives you the "Channel" part.

Even as a British person I agree with you, calling it the English Channel seems arrogant. However, Rosbif one of the weirdest insults I have heard. So is Froggie to be fair, but still

I knew it, but only because I've been to Djibouti, and have actually gotten my feet wet in it. Other than Djibouti, with its significant French and US influences, it's bordered by Yemen and Somalia - neither of which can boast a booming tourism industry!

The South China Sea does not separate China and the Philippines. Look at a map and you will see that it lies between Vietnam and the Philippines, and is bordered by Malaysia in the south. In Vietnam this sea is call the East Sea(Bien Dong), as it lies off the eastern coast of Vietnam. Calling it the South China Sea implies that Vietnam is somehow a part of southern China. This is offensive to the Vietnamese and is a classic case of imperialism and power determining the naming of places.

"Calling it the South China Sea implies that Vietnam is somehow part of southern China ". It does nothing of the sort. It's just the name of the sea in English - it's describing the sea's position relative to China.

Your comments sounds pretty reasonable to me. Either they aren't aware of China's policies around the sea, or they just think you should accept it quietly and meekly. Odd.
