Comments for EUROPE:

No way. Why would you name your kid after a continent? Even worse, given Europe's grim history and current political situation, it sounds awful as a name.

Honestly, I don't think there is any place in the world with a 100%-clean history. In that case, you may as well hate all place names.

To the person who said 'it's ridiculous to name your kid after a continent,' this is just a form of the name Europa, and it has little or nothing to do with the continent.

Personally, I like this name, but I think Europa's slightly better.

Europe (the continent) is called Europa in many languages.

I don't like this name, but it's so much better then America (yet worse than Asia).

It's just a mythological character. No normal person would use it for a child so there is no need to note how weird it would be as a name.

Europe derives from the Greek word (mythology): ΕΥΡΩΠΗ.
This name itself has the following two Greek components:
ΕΥΡΕΙΑ-ΟΠΗ > ΕΥΡΕΙΑ-ΟΨΗ = wide-face, sight, indicating the moon.

The continent was named after the mythological character. Pronounced YOO-rup or uh-ROH-peh.
