26. Honey ⚫ ⚫ Malta The origin of the term Malta is uncertain, and the modern-day variation derives from the Maltese language. The most common etymology is that the word Malta derives from the Greek word μέλι, meli, 'honey". ▪️ Gozo The island of Gozo has long been associated with Ogygia, the island home of the nymph Calypso in Homer's Odyssey. Ogygia is associated with the Ogygian deluge and with the mythological figure Ogyges, in the sense that the word Ogygian means "primeval", "primal", and "at earliest dawn", which would suggest that Homer's Ogygia was a primeval island. ▪️ Comino Named after the cumin seed that once flourished in the Maltese Islands. ▪️ Filfla The name is believed to come from felfel , the Arabic for a peppercorn. ▪️ Valletta The victorious Grand Master, Jean de Valette, set out to build a new fortified city on the Sciberras Peninsula to fortify the Order's position in Malta and bind the Knights to the island. The city took his name and was called La Valletta. ▪️ Mdina The word "medina" (Arabic: مدينة‎‎ madīnah) itself simply means "city" or "town" in modern-day Arabic. ▪️ Rabat Rabat is a town in the Northern Region of Malta, with a population of 11,497 as of March 2014. The name of the town is derived from the Arabic word for 'suburb': الرباط. ▪️ Marsaxlokk The village’s name comes from marsa, which means "port" and xlokk, which is the local name for south east. ▪️ Mellieha The name Mellieħa is derived from the Semitic root m-l-ħ, which means salt. This is probably derived from the ancient Punic-Roman salt pans which existed at Mellieħa Bay. The site of the salt pans is now occupied by the Għadira Nature Reserve. ▪️ Sliema Sliema is the Maltese word meaning peace and was used to salut someone. ▪️ Victoria Victoria is the name given on 10 June 1887 by the British government on the occasion of Queen Victoria's Golden Jubilee. . ✴️ #Malta #gozo #comino #mdina #valetta #sliema #marsaxlokk #etymology #language #map #maps #mapstagram #history #curiosity #curiosities #Wikipedia #googleearth #pixlr #geography #EtymoMundus #interestingfacts #mythology  #historical #worldhistory #curious #worldfacts #knowledge #facts #historic #didyouknow
