its good to see that Kingston, Jamaica and Kingstown, St Vincent's and the Grenadines have the same percentage seeing how Kingston accepts Kingstown as well. I would've been worried if they were different percentages.

Well, most of the reason that you would even want to know capitals of small countries like Haiti (besides getting points) is so that you don't sound like a dummy. if you visit the country, and I think that if you visit Haiti and call it "Port-A-Prince" you would probably sound like a dummy.

It appears I have randomly positioned a period in my reply and now I sound like a dummy.

Oh, you never know, when the local people name their capital, it may well sound like Port-a-Prince, too.

Hey! You finally accepted Mexico, D.F. for "Mexico City!" Cool beans. Though... why you accept Guatemala for "Guatemala City," while at the same time not accepting simply Mexico or Panama, remains a mystery.

Locally, people call Guatemala City simply Guatemala. I don't believe this is true for Panama City or Mexico City. So hopefully that solves the mystery for you.

Quizmaster, locally Mexicans call Mexico City as México, or DF. Furthermore, while road signs in freeways pointing cities like Ciudad Juárez, Ciudad Obregón or Ciudad Victoria have at least the "Cd." (Ciudad) prepended to them, road signs pointing Mexico City only say "México", without "Cd."

and, locally, Kuwait City is "Al Kuwayt," similar to "Ad Dammam," "Al Khobar," or "Ar Riyadh." "City" was just tacked on by English-speakers to differentiate from the country. Like all of these.

Extremely strange. But... maybe QM will come around some day like he finally did on the Myanmar issue. Guatemala, Mexico, Panama, and Kuwait should all be acceptable as names for their cities. And possibly Andorra.

I'm pretty sure that 88% of people on this site have not heard of SV & G. It's sad that it works for both Jamaica and St. VIncent, even though they are pronounced differently. If people don't know it, they learn it!
