USA is not America

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.

Why was America renamed to South America and Parias was renamed to North America if it was NOT intended to be one continent?

If it was supposed to be two separate continents why the name change especially having America in both?


Parias was described by Waldseemüller's follower, Johannes Schöner as: "The island of Parias, which is not a part or portion of the foregoing [America] but a large, special part of the fourth part of the world", indicating uncertainty as to its situation.üller_map

“...NOT a part or portion of the foregoing [America]...”

Hm, no. I think I will continue to speak how I want. Your "political correctness" is very unbecoming


Most of what they post isn’t even correct—politically or otherwise.

Saris Maria(United States)says...

If parias was the name of the northern part of the new landmass why is it that the USA used "Of America" to denominate the location rather than what you have assert the name of the northern part is and that is"Of Parias"?


If? If? You’re still denying reality? How so very typical of Mrs. Roda Saris Anonymous.


I educated you about Parias and about ‘America’ being a word. You are most welcome. Now you must finally start properly educating yourself. Stop letting your biases and emotions get in the way of true knowledge.

Saris Maria(United States)says...

From where did the USA adopted the "Of America" From?


Remember how Mrs. Roda Saris Anonymous wouldn’t admit the obvious fact that her precious 1507 Waldseemüller map clearly labels only South America as ‘America’, and clearly labels North America as ‘Parias’? Remember when she lied about the meaning of the Schöner quote? Schöner clearly states that America and Parias are separate regions, yet Misses the Obvious ridiculously claimed that he meant the opposite. That’s classic Mrs. Roda Saris Anonymous for you. Always willing to state obvious falsehoods in defense of her “arguments”.

Saris Maria(United States)says...

Where did the USA get the name "America" from?


The answer to your question is obviously already in my post that you responded to. Duh. Your reading comprehension is so abysmal that it almost makes me physically ill.


Remember when Mrs. Roda Saris Anonymous argued for months that ‘America’ isn’t a word? And of course she didn’t post any links to reputable sources that supported her claim. Because there are no reputable sources that support her claim. Because her claim is complete BS. Remember how I posted many links that proved the obvious fact that ‘America’ is a word? That’s how you do it, kids. That’s how you completely and very easily destroy an obviously ridiculous “argument”.

Saris Maria(United States)says...



Yes, crazy biased, ignorant, and simple-minded. In other words, your standard operating procedure.

Saris Maria(United States)says...

hey this is not a political forum, you must had pressed the wrong


Such calm after the destruction. I have seen this before.



Thanks Mrs. Saris for your great shared knowledge that actually contributes coherently to the topic.

Spammers like the anormal idiot who will never comprehend and are stocked within their locked Parkinsonized brain are needed in this world to full fill our desire to explode our anger every time we are in pleasure to do so.

Thanks to you STUPID DAVID as well because of this and still have to let you know that your responses greatly makes me vomit.

Anytime that I wish to vomit I will come back to this website and read your comments and responses.


You cannot disprove one thing that I have posted. Where are your facts? Show me one reputable source that says ‘the United States of America’ is not a proper name. It was easy for me to find proof that it is a proper name. Where is your proof that it isn’t? We both know that you will not find proof of your claims because what you post is BS. This is really easy. If your statements are true, provide links to the sources. This is what I do. This is how I very easily destroy your so-called arguments. RESEARCH AND THINK, PAYASO.
