Indeed, U.S.A. is not America!

America is the name of a whole continent. United States of America means that the United States belongs to America and NOT that America belongs to the United States. So, next time you want to refer to The United States of America, you can do it as U.S. or the States or whatever you want but not as only America. Gotcha?

How should I use the term America then?

Here we will show you some wrong and correct uses of the term America:

  • This is how we do it in America.
  • This is how we do it in the States.
  • America is my country and I love it.
  • The United States is my country and I love it.
  • America lost the Vietnam war.
  • U.S.A. lost the Vietnam war.
  • Here in America we love Mc Donald's.
  • Here in the U.S. we love Mc Donald's.

Please, note that this page in not about demonyms (gentilics) but about the way to call a country.

There are seven continents which are Europe, Africa, Asia, North America, South America, Australia, and Antartica. [media.web.britannica.com/eb-media/59/89959-004-732AD68F.gif] The country names are America (short for United States of America) and Australia (short for Commonwealth of Australia). America is a country and North America and South America are continents. Australia is the only country to have the same name of the continent but other countries don't seem to mind.

America is also the name of the first nation of the new world...makes no difference. What's your problem, since your country has not our name? Is there some rule that a country can't name itself after a continent? I guess somebody better go inform the Australians about this rule so they can change their names. The land of making up the United States is named after the continent, this is why Americans naturally call themselves Americans. Also, if you don't like the United States of AMERICA then stay away from our country. You are arguing over the demonym we use, which is about as petty and silly as you can be. All this leads me to believe you wouldn't be wanted here in the first place, let alone be a productive citizen. To all critics of “America” as the U.S.: I know the situation isn’t ideal. I know the Constitution should really read “United States of Some Parts of America Plus Hawaii,” but that’s not how it reads, and lecturing Americans about it on cruises isn’t just pointless but also unfair. Americans have been calling their country “America” for more than two centuries. They will and should continue. Deal with it. The reason really is quite simple. We claimed the name first. The United States was the first independent country in the Americas, (1776), Haiti was the second in 1804, 28 years later. We named our country first and therefore dibsed the American moniker. You snooze, you lose. We never thought this at all...we only share the name, as we were first to make a country here. No other country shares this name, and we have the right to name as we wish. There's no law saying we couldn't You misunderstand our meaning...completely. We were merely the first established nation to share the name of our continent with our country's name...nothing more. You misunderstand it all, as does this page.I don't think it is arrogant or superior at all. I'm not aware of any other countries that have the word "America" in their name. You are named by your country, not your continent, S.A. USA just happens to share the same name...no other country does. We were 1st established nation...you snooze, you lose. Get over it, as this will never change.Your country does not claim America in its name, S.A.--and no one calls themselves by their continent...so why attack USA because it's in OUR name? No reason to, as it is only a country name...the first of the continent. Your arguement is pointless, because you cannot use America in your name anyway, because it's not what your leaders named your country--nothing to do with us. Your hate is filled with ignorance...you have no point. We have no quarrel with you...you simply misunderstand, my brother.

AMERICA IS THE NAME GIVEN FOR A CONTINENT SINCE 1507. IT IS NOT A STUPID ISSUE OF FASHION OR CLOTHES. IT IS A MATTER OF HISTORY AND DOCUMENTED CARTOGRAPHY. HISTORY IS NEVER OUT OF FASHION. WHAT IS WRITEN BY HISTORY ANYBODY HAS THE RIGHT TOCHANGE OR MAKUP FOR CONVIENCE OR WHATEVER *censored*ING REASON. GRINGO IGNORANT!!!

Btw, we kicked the sh* it out of the Nazis...don't ever forget that.

20th Apr, 3:07 PM
You only try to lie and start Sh* it. We do NOT think we own the continents. We were merely the first established nation to share the name of our continent with our country's name...nothing more. You misunderstand it all, as does this page, stating such tripe as 'America blelongs to USA'. We never thought this at all...we only share the name, as we were first to make a country here. No other country shares this name, and we have the right to name as we wish. There's no law saying we couldn't You misunderstand our meaning...completely. My God, we try to help those in need, and people like you hate us for it. Shame...

Don't mind them. These U.S.gringos don't start maturing until they hit their forties. And even then they are just evolving in to becoming mentally teenagers. Therefore holding a conversation with them on any subject is a waste of time. After all, just like their European equivalent the Nazi Germans back in the 30's, they believe themselves sole heir of America(1507). But believe they may, America (1507) is the name of continent.

Vespuccia is two continents. It existed as a continent, and will continue to exist as a continent, long after the megalomaniac of the Federative Republic of Brazil ceases to exist

Vespuccia (1507) Donde brilla el tibio sol con un nuevo fulgor dorando las arenas Donde el aire es limpio aún bajo la suave luz de las estrellas Donde el fuego se hace amor el río es hablador y el minte selva Hoy encontré un lugar para los dos en esta nueva tierra. Vespuccia, Vespuccia todo un inmenso jardín esto es Vespuccia. Cuando Dios hizo el edén pensó en Vespuccia. Cada nuevo atardecer el cielo empieza arder y escucho el viento que me trae con su canción una queja de amor como un lamento El perfume de una flor el ritmo de un tambor en las praderas danzas de guerra y paz de un pueblo que aún no ha roto sus cadenas Vespuccia, Vespuccia todo un inmenso jardín esto es Vespuccia. Cuando Dios hizo el edén pensó en Vespuccia

This has nothing to do with anything. You are named by your country, not your continent, S.A. USA just happens to share the same name...no other country does. We were 1st established nation...you snooze, you lose. Get over it, as this will never change.

America is one continent (1507). It existed as a continent, and will continue to exist as a continent, long after the megalomaniac of the United States of America ceases to exist
