Two things. 1. You're reading the clue wrong. As written it implies that the name was Leningrad before St. Petersburg. 2. It wouldn't matter if it was written the other way because St. Petersburg was the name of Leningrad both before and after it was Leningrad.

Maybe it's QM's way of saying that the island belonged to ancient Greece (the meaning of 'Grecian'), but wasn't Greek?

"Luthansa" doesn't mean anything. The "Luft" has the same root as "Lift" and is the part that means airborne. So the 'f' is a necessary part of the name.

Luft just means air/sky

I can't imagine why Luftwaffe didn't work for the German airline. ;) That's all I could think. Obviously, I knew that wasn't correct.

Even if Norway did acknowledge an official religion of its country, it would be "Lutheran," and NOT Lutheranism. I have never heard of it being referred to in this way.

Lutheranism is the noun, Lutheran the adjective. Lutheran is also accepted, so not sure what your issue is here.

3rd WHAT city in poland? 3rd city to build a Pizza Hut? 3rd to be on this quiz? or even the 3rd to construct a road side bench that was immediately pooped on by the world's most majestic bird: the pigeon. What is it? What else makes Łódź special enough to make this quiz aside from being written proof that the Polish know how to cross out letters, and then stop halfway?

It is not "clearly", in most languages you cant say it like that and you really do need to specify or it is very confusing, if it was said in my language I would think, The 3rd city you reach in the direction you are traveling. (Or 3rd to have become something but then you really need the subject). On this site though, it is the most logical choice. But for a non english speaker it does looks weird.
