    I've kickstarted a simple basic version of the page on the wiki, right in front of the Alternate Terminology page. Feel free to expand it and improve it.

    P.S. Sorry if the foreword seems too similar to Thande's on the ATP. I just wanted to create a sense of continuity between the two pages.

    Good page idea. I was going to add Antarctica, but I can't remember any alternative names in major TLs.

    Well, my TL has Antarctica (ironically) getting named Australia (a more natural choice, if you consider the whole "Terra Australis" origin thing and how the fabled southern continent was depicted in many a map of the world from the 16.-18. century). :D

    Too bad my TL is still in the works and is currently only in the 15. - 16. century at best. A lot of work to do until its at least semi-finished (I'll end it around 1995)...

    Thanks for the link, and more importantly, thanks for creating the page! :)
