There actually is a Celtic Sea. It's more to the southwest of the isles, and it's west of the Channel. It touches southern Ireland and Wales, northern Cornwall, and western Brittany.

The "Arabian Gulf" is another name for the Persian Gulf so that should be accepted also.

South china sea alone has at least half a dozen local names, so I guess it makes sense to just go with the commonly adopted international name.

I recommend that you make it a "yellow box" quiz, otherwise it's just a naming random bodies of water quiz.

In some languages the sea southwest of Sweden is refered to as the East Sea (Dutch: Oostzee, German: Ostsee, Sweden: Östersjön). Maybe you could accept that as a possible answer...

If we’re being technical, the Norwegian Sea is also north of Iran. That should definitely be accepted...
