So many places so many names and so many meanings ...


Getty Thesaurus of Geographic Names 
Search the TGNHelp
Find Name or ID: 
Place Type: 

Search Tips
For the Find Name field, you may use AND and OR [e.g., 1) san carlos, 2) carlos OR charles, 3) carl* OR charl*, 4) san AND carlos, 5) carlos AND (san OR saint), 6) (carlos OR charles) AND (san OR saint)] Boolean operators must be in all caps (AND and OR). Wildcard is the asterisk (*); right truncation only. To find an exact match rather than a key word, use quotes [e.g., "carlos"]. There is an implied AND between the Find Name, Place Type, and Nation fields.
