Nice quiz. Not so fun fact, the etymology of “gypsy” is from the historical assumption that the Romani people were Egyptian because of their skin colour (Egypt still even has “gyp” in the middle). Of course, Romani people likely originate from India, not Egypt.

Simple idea, but very interesting quiz. I've never heard or read the word for meddling person, so it was nice to learn something new. :)
