Check Why Do Austria And Australia Have Such Similar Names

Most of you have wondered probably wondered why the names of such different countries differ only in two letters. It is impossible to confuse the, one is famous across the whole world for Mozart and Viennese waffles and the other is known for Kangaroos and Koalas. I found out some tips on what actually unites Austria and Australia.

Starting with Austria

Its name sounds like Osterreich (“eastern state” or “eastern country,” from Osten – eact and Reich – state empire). The name was given to Austria in the Duchy of Bavaria (which, as we know, belong to Germany) because of its geographical location.

Australia

Before the Age of Discovery, the people of the Old World assumed that on the side of the equator there must be some unknown Southern Land (Latin: Terra Australis Incognita). The name was given to all lands south of equator at first, until Lanchian Macquarie, governor of New Wales, recommended officially calling the new continent Australia.

In general, the question of what Australia and Australia have in common is that both countries received names in honor of the sides of the world, but the names of different parts of the world. The names are in different languages. And it appeared that they all sound alike, although it is more likely an accident.
