Here are three elements we often see in town names:

If a town ends in “-by”, it was originally a farmstead or a small village where some of the Viking invaders settled. The first part of the name sometimes referred to the person who owned the farm - Grimsby was “Grim’s village”. Derby was “a village where deer were found”. The word “by” still means “town” in Danish.

If a town ends in “-ing”, it tells us about the people who lived there. Reading means “The people of Reada”, in other words “Reada’s family or tribe”. We don’t know who Reada was, but his name means “red one”, so he probably had red hair.

If a town ends in “-caster” or “-chester”, it was originally a Roman fort or town. The word comes from a Latin words “castra”, meaning a camp or fortification. The first part of the name is usually the name of the locality where the fort was built. So Lancaster, for example, is “the Roman fort on the River Lune”.

OKAY LISTEN UP EUROPALS, EUROVISION FANS, AND ANYONE IN PARTICULAR WHO LIKES EUROVISION.
To celebrate this year’s Eurovision Song Contest on Tumblr, we’re changing our icons this picture of Mei Feingold (the Israeli contestant):

It is the same picture as the one above and should look like this when cropped to the icon size:

You may do it for as long as you want, but most importantly it has to be so between 4-11 May 2014, during Eurovision week where all shows take place.
