Clearly this cannot be correct. After all, the BANDits have shown us that feathers actually evolved from flat plate-like scales that became subdivided. Amazing that these EvoDevo workers can change feathers into collagen fibres. :-]

Hey, these guys have _Liopleurodon_ DNA! They can do anything!!

For consideration: Guernsey was known as Sarnia, Herm was Erimus, and Alderney was known as Ridunia. I'm not aware of names for Sark. The Isle of Wight was named Vectis. Names of New England territories were often named for old English regions, or those of Scottland, and the Latin
names for the old territories are usually transcribed or another ancient tongue, preceded by
"neo-". Thus New Hampshire, New York, New Jersey, and so forth.

York (in England) was called Eburacum in Roman times, so New York would be Nova Eburacum. Doesn't quite have the same ring to it...
