New South Wales?
It was Captain Cook who gave New South Wales its name.
He had, as far as we know, no connection with Wales, and no one knows whether he meant this to be a new South Wales (in which case, what was wrong with the north?) or a new Wales in the southern hemisphere.
In fact, no one knows why he chose to liken it to any part of Wales at all.
