Curious as to the cutoff point? Kythira is so close to Kos in size, seems like it would've been included, and then the cutoff could have been 100 sqmi.

Maybe because Jetpunk's default quiz size is 15 answers?

Actually when you make a quiz you choose how many questions you want. I suppose 15 is an easy multiple, most quizzes are 10/15/20 etc it makes a good cut off point.

Please accept evia for euboea (the most counter-intuitive name version for any Greek speaker). The Greek name "εύβοια" is never displayed as euboea in local signs or so.

Could you please accept Limnos? I kept typing it in, and it was not accepted. When I checked it afterwards, my Google map actually spells it that way.

I had transliteration problems... I know them all, but only the Greek names ("lesvos", "evia", etc.)

@ct I agree with ct - could not for the life of me find a way to spell that. Evia is definitely the way it's pronounced and written

Here, it is spelled "Cephalonia" but here, (https://www.jetpunk.com/quizzes/biggest-mediterranean-islands-quiz) it is spelled "Kefalonia". Which one is correct?

Cephalonia is a more "archaic" spelling coming from french where "K" is transliterated as "C" and "Φ" as "ph" whereas Kefalonia is the modern simplified english version.

More people know about lesbos than rhodes?

It has been in the news for several years now so, it makes sense that more people today have heard of Lesvos than Rhodes. Of course I've heard of both.

It wasn't it (I actually closed some tabs about that very subject yesterday, with some nice old maps) means red island, from the old dutch roode eylant. (in current dutch rode eiland or (rood eiland)). It was referring just to Aquidneck island, not the mainland.

|Edit: Been diving into the maps again, the oldest one I can find is Novi Belgii.. from 1655.

My high score is 6. I've only been to one Greek island and it's not on this list.

Could you please give the areas in square kilometers and not square miles, like it says in the table? That would really help.

Really surprised that enough people took this quiz in order for it to award points. Most people have no knowledge of Greece aside from the Parthenon and the debt crisis. Perhaps they thought it was going to be Crete and a couple others. The percentages suggest I'm probably right.

Any chance of allowing Rhodos for Rhodes? Seeing how just about every other island ends in os, I don’t think that it could hurt to allow an answer closer to the Greek pronunciation. Also, now I’ve learned about the existence of the island of Euboea! I always assumed that it was a peninsula.

weird how the order of known ones hardly has any resamblance to the order of their size. I missed rhodes (always slips my mind) but I know the 5 most guessed, none of the other looked really familiar, lemnos and andros do slightly but could be from something else.

Perhaps lemnos from something with mythology and andros just because it is like an often used suffix. Or maybe for lemnos I am influenced by lemniscate, or maybe the elvenbread I can never remember but feel like it might be similar.

I knew most of these from playing Assassin's Creed Odyssey. Pretty fun quiz
