Mallorca looks like a goat, or some other sort of animal head.

Whatever it is I'd rather live there than on Booger Island just to the west of it.

Palm Jumeirah, seriously? Can that even been properly considered as an island? And I don't say that only because I had no idea of that thing's name wathsoever...

Isn't the Palm Jumeirah technically an archipelago, or is it only the middle part that counts as the Palm?

Yes it can. It is an island, because Bahrain is a peninsula. Do not forger the bridges! Cyprus belongs to Europe, like Greenland!

I dont really know any of these but Im guessing this island is spanish. because in spanish, 2 "l"s might sound as J like. "eja" in "ella"

No. In spanish, 2 'L's make the sound of 'Y', as ella is pronounced as aye-ya. They can also make the sound of 'zh' as Mazhorca. I am not Spanish so this info might not be 100% accurate. however, i have learned much of this language.

2 Ls in spanish makes a "J" or "Y" sound, for americans they would see it as a "Y" but for most other languages they would probably suggest the double Ls to be "J"

2 L's in Spanish makes a "y" sound, not a "J" sound. In Russian the "J" is pronounced like a "Y". I am from Central América so I speak Spanish as a first language. A "J" in Spanish sound more like the "H" in English.

PTYOLO, Central American Spanish is not standard, your pronounciation of Mallorca is probably much different from this in Spain

According to Wikipedia both are correct, but Majorca is listed first with Mallorca as the "also" spelling. The name came from Latin, insula major, but the native name is listed as Mallorca. An older spelling was Maiorica. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Majorca
