Atlas of the True Names

Have you ever wondered where names evolved from?
I often find myself trying to dig through the origins of names and the like...

Well, if you're like me, then you'll certainly love to have this True Name's Atlas that shows the hidden meaning behind the places we all know and love.

For instance, did you know Chicago actually comes from "Stink Onion" and Cameroon is called the Land of Shrimps due to the Portuguese word for shrimp (Camarão)?

You'll find all that  and much more in this nice sugestion for a Christmas present.
