The alpaca belongs to the genus Vicugna. Also, the ABC islands are usually considered part of North America (along with the rest of the Caribbean).

They may be considered part of North America, but they are not. Look at any map. .

Do you then also consider Panama and Costa Rica part of South America? After all, their northernmost points are still more southern than the ABC islands.

Nice quiz. Agree with Sean about Aruba, Bonaire and Curaçao, and I'd also say that Easter Island belongs more to Oceania than South America.

Depends if you think constituent countries of a kingdom are being owned. They are however an autonoumous country (since 2010). I believe only defense is managed by the Netherlands. It governs itselfs and has an independent legal system. You could use the argument that officially the king of the Netherlands is the head of state (as the king of the kingdom of the netherlands) but well the queen of the UK is also the head of state for Australia. So not really a relevant point.

So it is autonomous, but not sovereign because together with 3 other countries part of a kingdom. Whether you see that as owning or not is a matter of semantics. If you regard being part of similar to being owned or not.

It's not that "last name isn't the important". It's that we have 2 last names: paternal and maternal.
Normally, only the paternal is used in everyday speaking, but in this case with this author, his name and paternal last name are rather common, so the maternal last name is used to further differenciate.
Now, this works with Spanish-speaking people, but not with Portuguese-speaking names, who put the paternal last name at the end, and also can have up to 4 last names (!)
