Maybe the Vietnam question could be better worded. I was searching for a CURRENT country that begins with an "N."

And then there's the contention that "North Vietnam" annexed "South Vietnam." The Geneva Accords of 1954 made no reference to two different countries (for which there was no historical basis). The division was a stall tactic on the U.S.'s part to try to shore up the non-Communist forces prior to the agreed-upon nationwide election to be held in 1956. As Eisenhower said later, it wasn't held because the U.S. government realized that it was obvious that Ho Chi Minh would win any relatively fair election in a landslide. So, three-to-five million deaths later, if you want to call the reuniting of Vietnam an "annexation," that would be in keeping with standard U.S. takes, but please acknowledge that it's a U.S. take.

I automatically typed Nagpur as soon as I started, along with Negev, Nagoya, Nanjing, New Delhi and maybe a couple other major N answers for Asia.

Novosibirsk (Новосибирск) means New SiberiaN in Russian. Like New Siberian (City), but without the word City. New Siberia would be Novaya Sibir (Новая Сибирь). I did not find an example on the internet, but you can try it in Google Translate. Just paste there Сибирск (Sibirsk) and you will see that the translation of it is Siberian.

Surprised to see Tamil Nadu in here - "Nadu" is a Tamil common noun meaning - in this context - state, whereas "Tamil" is the proper noun. (Bonus trivia: it's only one word in the local language.)

For a Tamil speaker, finding T.N on this quiz is almost like seeing Canada's Northwest Territories on a 'T' quiz, or perhaps New Zealand's South Island on an 'I' quiz.
