Hispania is not Latin for Iberia, but for Spain (Hispania/España means "land of rabbits", while Iberia means "land of the Iberian tribes). The confusion probably arises from the fact that in Roman times Hispania also included Portugal (basically the province of Lusitania), so geographicaly speaking the past time Hispania and the present time Iberia cover the same area.

So therefore it is the Latin name for both. It's the Latin name, not a Latin translation.

Great quiz, many complaints: 1. It doesn't make logical sense to have a question referring to another question that the quiz taker hasn't even reached yet. 2. The king question is too easy and the answer doesn't relate to Spain. 3. Ferdinand is another former Spanish dictator whose name begins with F. 3. The war question is too easy and the answer doesn't relate to Spain. 4. This is very picky, but Francis Xavier was from Navarre, a region that was not part of Spain during his time. I recommend changing it to Xavi, a legendary Spanish footballer. 5. The youth question is very confusing and too vague. 6. There is certainly a better clue for Zaragoza than its English cognate. Sorry for being so picky. This is a great quiz, so I thought I would give my input on how to make it perfect (in my opinion).

Thanks for your suggestions. Answers:
1. You don't have to go in order (and judging by the answer stats, most people don't go in order) Iberian: 87%; Hispania: 25%
2. Are you saying Felipe and Juan Carlos weren't kings? 87% are getting it correct, anyway.
3. I think you're mistakenly calling King Ferdinand a dictator, a rank he should never be referred to as.
3'. The answer does indeed relate to Spain, as it is a Spanish war.
4. We don't live in the past (I hope!). Navarre is now one of most geographically-diverse regions in Spain!
5. Unemployment for the youth (young as an acceptable type-in) is 48%. 48% of all Spanish young are unemployed. If you're still confused, I'll give another go at explaining :)
6. We didn't want the Z clue, being the uncommon letter it is, to be too low in the stats. It pretty much gives Z.argossa, just a couple of switches are deletes.
Again, thanks for your requests. :)

Can't be that great if you find so many things to complain about. A lot of nitpicking, but that seems to be the thing on this site - everyone is a (unnecessarily pedantic) critic.

Just a note - Ignatius Loyola was the founder of the Jesuit order, not Francis Xavier. Francis was a Jesuit missionary in China.

Although Francis Xavier was one of the first 7 to take vows and become one the first Jesuits, any of us educated by the Jesuits know that Ignatius Loyola founded the order (and he was also Spanish)
