As I noted in an earlier posting--which may have gone out into limbo
somewhere instead of its proper destination--Utopia and Ceratopia are based
on different roots: _topos_ meaning "place" and _ops_ meaning "face." The
similarity between Utopia and Ceratopia is due to convergent evolution--like
the similarities between _Jenghizkhan bataar_ and _Tyrannosaurus rex_.
