I spent many years living in the U.S., but then I don't remember the word ever coming up in conversation, so that would explain it. Might chic be a more universal rhyme?

It's also worth noting that Cote d'Ivoire does not recognize the translation of their country's name, and, in diplomatic matters at least, insists that it's name be in French, regardless of the contextual language in which it's being used.

I got stuck on thinking that Sofia, Bulgaria was named after Sophiam, the goddess of wisdom. Turns out it was named after St. Sofia church, which is named after an Eastern Orthodox Saint, who was presumably not named for the pagan goddess of wisdom. Overthinking again!

There's a statue of Sophia in the middle of Sofia which adds to the confusion, but yes it's named for the holy spirit (Hagia Sophia).

If this is General Knowledge Quiz #166, that would seem to imply that there is a General Knowledge Quiz #165.

I guess that's exactly what they want us to think! (said in my best Maxwell Smart voice)
