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.

USA didn't steal a name. No other country was called America before the USA declared independence.

The U.S. would had been as intelligent as the other countries if it would had chosen a real name of its own rather than stealing the name of the continnet.

Anyone who is born in the American continent are called Americans.

The U.S> and with all its money thrown to education and they are still not even close to be up high in the education rank. Money is not everything.

People in your country are one of the mos ignorant in Geography and Universal History. Learn History and Cartography idiot. Your *censored* culture is just for you. We respect History. Learn Gringo donkey, learn!!!!. In your country there are 17 million of people in poverty and complete ignorance. Did you know that??? []

I'm American because I was born in the United States of America. You're Mexican if you're born in the United Mexican States. You're Peruvian if you're born in the Republic of Peru. You're Nicaraguan if you're born in the Republic of Nicaragua. Etc.

It's impossible to teach an ignorant person with your poor third world education. Do they still teach you the world is flat? What happens to all the money and aid America and other countries give your poor countries? It isn't working as far as I can tell.

Dumbas.s doesn't know that it doesn't make sense in any language. If people from the USA are called United Statean than what are people from the UK called? United Kingdomean? No! Because it doesn't make sense. And America is in English and América (with the accent) is in Spanish. We don't use the accent. Try again dumbas.s

21st Oct, 5:35 PM

21st Oct, 2:49 PM
they’re all Americans when I’d use the continent names and think of them as North Americans or South Americans. It would be kind of like West Virginians objecting to residents of the state of Virginia calling themselves Virginians

21st Oct, 2:37 PM
America is the United States of America and we're called Americans.

21st Oct, 2:36 PM
There are 7 continents in the world.
