On International Women’s Day the Lunchtime Trivia question celebrated it with the Question: St Lucia is the only country in the world that can boast this. What is it?
It didn’t take too much to find the Answer: The only country in the world named after a woman.
According to Wikipedia: One of the Windward Islands, Saint Lucia was named after Saint Lucy of Syracuse. It is the only country in the world named after a historical woman (Ireland is named after the Celtic goddess of fertility Eire). Legend states French sailors were shipwrecked here on 13 December, the feast day of St. Lucy, thus naming the island in honor of Sainte Lucie.
