I love the idea of this, but some of the selected answers don't really fit what you're going for.

For example- Mongolia refers to more or less the same region with both clues; Western Sahara is definitively just referring to part of the desert that's already mentioned; and Macedonia is just asking for controversy, since you're talking about two different parts of the same politically-charged region.

On the other hand, Pearl, Bad, Cedar, and Sierra are great since they refer to drastically distinct geographic entities.

Agreed completely. Also might want to think about Cedar. This isn't really two places with the same name, it's a place and a picture on a flag.

You're completely missing the point, which is that one is a NAME of a thing and one is a description of a PICTURE of a thing. But I'll humor you anyway. Geography is not ONLY about places. However, calling a flag a geographical feature loosens the definition to the point where pretty much EVERYTHING is a geographical feature. Why not add Hannah Montana and Dakota Fanning to your quiz as well? They're certainly a part of "the lands, the features, the inhabitants, and the phenomena of Earth" as much as a flag is.

This quiz was fun! With all respect to GrandMo and tchutzer, I think they're missing the point - we're just being asked here to have fun with words that appear in two different geographical contexts.
From my own visit to Macedonia, the country, and Macedonia, the Greek region, neither place feels "politically charged" - the only beef is just around the name: the Greeks are irritated that Macedonia, the country, is naming itself with a name that many Greeks feel belong to them.

And the use of Sahara in Western Sahara and Sahara Desert are not two different contexts. They're both referring to the exact same thing. Here's a new clue to add: North ______: Location of Fargo; South _____: Home of Mount Rushmore.

I agree with Jerry928. The fact that it wasn't just locations made it that much extra fun. It makes you think a little more. Well done.

GrandMo and tschutzer ~ Western Sahara is a disputed geopolitical name, with meaning far beyond just "Here lies the western part of the Sahara Desert".
+1
level 67
Sep 21, 2017
We understand that it is a name distinct from "a region of the desert;" what we're saying is that the word SAHARA is used in the same context in both clues.

As opposed to Pearl or York, which refer to two entirely different areas of the world, SAHARA and MONGOLIA e.g. are just the two different references to the same term.

Refer to the North/South "Dakota" example above. It demonstrates the problem with using this kind of reference.

How annoying. I live in York, but I've never heard of a cape peninsula in Australia with that name.

As well as Cape York in Queensland (the most northerly point of Australia) there is in South Australia a York Peninsular, looks just like Italy, and Yorktown, there is a county of York also. There is a York in Western Australia with a great Car Museum. There is York Town in Tasmania etc.

Nice, but note that the Indian (actually Persian) suffix is -ābād, meaning "inhabited place" (probably related to Persian āb, water)

Dec 25, 2017
you are right. in Persian, a place with residents is called abad. besides abad is not just a suffix in southern Asia. several places in iran, iraq, afghanistan, turkmenistan, uzbekistan, tajikistan and even azerbaijan, armenia and turkey have a similar suffix.

I agree, awolf. Having lived there during the 1990s, I can say it is totally appropriate for "Rapids" to be in quotation marks. The rapids in Cedar Rapids aren't very big unless you count the 5-in-1 Dam.
