Visited the one most to the East of these in 1989. Learned all the islands by heart then. Still have it.

Good quiz, chance for me to learn something. Does 'Lanzarote' mean 'Spear Throw?..... I think El Hierro means 'The Iron'...... La Palma ..... The Palm..... and I think Fuerte Ventura means 'Strong Fortune' or words to that effect. I don't know but does Gran Canaria mean 'Big Dog'?

El Hierro does mean “the iron”, but it's not of the same etymological origin. “Lanza” means spear, but “rote” doesn't mean anything and the origin of the name is unrelated to spears. The Spanish words “can” and “cánido” mean dog, but “Canaria” doesn't. Your translations of La Palma and Fuerteventura are correct.

Fuertaventura is totally incorrect, same with Las Palmas, Las Palmas is the city and Gran Canaria the island. I'm canarian

I wouldn't add Graciosa as an island in this quiz. After all, in the description it wrote MAIN islands , and El Hierro , the smallest island in this quiz , is more than 4 times larger.

As @Geografen says, they should add La Graciosa (north to Lanzarote) as the eighth island.

Two years later and it still hasn’t been added. La Graciosa became a canary island in 2018, please add it.
