    Africa

    In ancient times there was much trade between the lands with coastlines on the Mediterranean Sea. Although the Romans did not known how far the lands along the southern border of the sea extended inland, they knew well the hot, sunny climate of the area. They called the land Africa, most likely a derivative of their adjective aprica, which is Latin for “sunny.” The Latin term can be traced to the Greek word aphrike, meaning “without cold.” The Greeks also knew the hot climate of northern Africa.

    Arctic

    To chart their course across the seas, the ancient mariners relied heavily on the stars, the movements of the constellations, and the position of the sun. To the north, they observed a group of stars whose configuration suggested the shape of a bear. To name this constellation, known today as Ursa Major (Greater Bear), the ancient Greeks used their term arktikos (“of the bear”). Through the years, arktikos came to refer to the northern regions of the earth. English altered the spelling to “arctic.”

    it also means land of the pure
    pak means pure
    Stan means land

    Bhai ..... first thing is at the time there was no Afghania province so it is also thought that the last three words "TAN" are due to the last three letters of Balochis"TAN" .....and they also say that the last "N" has been taken from the balochista"N" and there's also a little confusion in the name that where is the share of the province of Bangla in the name? ..... and btw from which city you're from?
