Subject: Romania

It's been interesting to read these postings concerning language derivatives. I thought I'd add "2 cents" worth: "Romania" was so called due to the fact that many Roman soldiers and officers chose to retire there at the end of their careers, due to the climate, cost of living and location among well-established trade routes. Trivial pursuit!
