It is. Iago or Tiago or Diego is Spanish for James (Jacob). Puerto Rico is not a country.

How about adding Copenhagen? I know it's rather obscure, but the name derives from the originial designation Køpmannæhafn, which means “merchants' harbour”. Or is there a difference between harbour and port that I don't know?

You don't have to go to the Icelandic language, in Danish it is København.

Nice idea. Interestingly the 'Bandar' in 'Bandar Seri Begawan' also seems to derive from the Persian word for Port :-)

It does, however in Malay, which is spoken in Brunei, Bandar means "town" or "city", which may be why it is not included.

San Salvador (Holy Savior) refers to Jesus Christ, who is not considered a saint. He is above sainthood.

Great quiz! I agree with Joez, though. San Salvador does not translate to Saint, nor does it refer to a saint. It means Holy Savior, and should be removed from this quiz.

Actually Santiago is named after an Apostle. It's the Spanish translation for James or Jacob, and it just happens to start with "San", but it doesn't refer to a Saint.

I don't see why an apostle is not supposed to be a saint.

Bandar Seri Begawan, capital of Brunei; "Bandar" means port. TMI: It is derived from Persian and passed through Indian languages
