Thank you. The etymology of Montevideo is uncertain. Montevideo is not grammatically correct Spanish. To learn more check out https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Montevideo Thanks!

Santiago just means "james" not necessarily "saint james", but still a great quiz, good job!

Hello, my research says: "Santiago means "Saint James", derived from Spanish santo "saint" combined with Yago, an old Spanish form of JAMES, the patron saint of Spain. This is the name of the capital city of Chile, as well as several other cities in the Spanish-speaking world." https://www.behindthename.com/name/santiago If you have a different source I'd love to see it. Thanks!

Diego is also a translation for James, so San Diego should be accepted.

This is a COUNTRY CAPITAL CITY quiz. San Diego is not a country capital. Thanks.
