I have to make a list of five different names of settlements, rivers, hills, subdivisions, or any other features in the landscape of my home region which I have done:
-Frenchman Bay, Altona Road, Petticoat Creek, Rouge Valley and Liverpool
next I have to find out:
o what language the names are
o what the names mean
o after whom places were named
However I am finding it difficult to find any websites that give me any information about these questions above.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
