Random information on the term “Continent”:

This is a list of the etymologies of continent names as they are currently found on Earth.

There are many theories regarding the etymology of Africa. One suggestion is that the name comes from the Ancient Egyptian word ‘afruika’ – which means ‘turning towards the ka’ or ‘turning towards the birthplace’ or ‘motherland’.

Other Eurocentric theories claim that the ancient Romans used the name Africa terra – “land of the Afri” (plural, or “Afer” singular) – for the northern part of the continent that corresponds to modern-day Tunisia. The origin of Afer may be the Phoenician afar, dust; the Afri tribe, who dwelt in Northern Africa around the area of Carthage; Greek aphrike (*ἀφρίκη), without cold; or Latin aprica, sunny.

The name “Africa,” which was originally used by the Romans to refer to present-day Tunisia, only began to be stretched to encompass a larger area when the provinces of Tripolitania, Numidia and Mauretania Caesariensis were subdued to the Diocesis of Africa, following the administrative restructuring of Diocletian. Later, when Justinian I reconquered lands of the former West Roman Empire, all the regions from the Chelif River to the Gulf of Sidra were annexed to the Byzantine Empire as the “Exarchate of Africa”.
