I was thinking about this yesterday on the drive home ... (I know I'm weird.)
I know the reasoning why this country is called "The United States of America" ... it's pretty obvious. But I started to wonder if the founding fathers ever thought of calling it something else. Maybe Washingtonia or Jeffersonia?
On Wikipedia, it was mentioned that some people used to call it America or even Columbia!
Does anyone have any more insight into this?
