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!

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.

San Diego is the seat (capital) of San Diego County. It still does not belong on the quiz though.

Isn't Santo Domingo translated as Holy Sunday (not St. Dominic).

Great question!

"Santo Domingo (meaning "Saint Dominic"), officially Santo Domingo de Guzmán, is the capital and largest city in the Dominican Republic and the largest metropolitan area in the Caribbean by population.

It *can* be translated as "Holy Sunday", but that's not the intention.

Sucre?

Level 55
Aug 27, 2019
Sucre comes from the guaraní Indian language. It does remind one of things sugary but that's not where the name stems from.

...isn't Buenos Aires more like "Good Airs"?
+2
Level 45
Aug 27, 2019
Direct/literal translations don't always make sense. Using "Fair" here is not an incorrect translation as the intended meaning in Spanish is retained. Plus, Bueno and Fair are comparable trans-lingual synonyms. Thanks!

As a native of Buenos Aires with interest in both etymologies and history, I endorse this explanation.

You are thinking about the wrong sense of the world 'assumption'.

I guess they made a wrong assumption about Assumption.
