Short List

Areas in Europe called Galicia.

Bayard adds: Galatia (ancient place name in modern Turkey)

Well I knew there were two (Spain and Ukraine), after some confusion on this blog many many posts ago, but are there more? (There's Galacia, but that's in the Asian part of Turkey).

B, are you sure? I can't see one on this map of Turkey's provinces

Although there is one called Batman!

It's an ancient place name, also spelt "Galatia" as in St Paul's letter to the Galatians.

"Although there is one called Batman!"

Sadly, its capital city is also called Batman, not Gotham.
