    after Amerigo Vespucci, since it would be more logical to name the continent after someone's last name, rather than first - so it should be "Vespuccia". What kind of rationalization is this - what what's the point!?

    The attitude seemed like that of scepticism, that America was named after Amerigo in the first place. But you might see this now and again, where people will dismiss observable reality, for their own theoretical logic

    So... according to this person, America is "more likely" named after something else, some mystery, something we have yet to find out - OR... America was always actually logically called Vespuccia, and we all just never noticed.

    Amerigo got his name from somewhere. Amirite?

    Yes, because Americo is from Americus which is from Emmerich or something like that in German which means Brave /Strong/Whole Ruler or Brave Home. Which is a kickass name.

    It's not 'logical' to assume the first name bias, though that's just...biased.
