9 out of 12, but some of them were just lucky guesses. I sometimes regret not having taken Latin in school (hubby had 8 years, and is good at that type of quiz).

8/12. Some of those a very hard, but I found it a lot of fun! I find really interresting to know the origin of words ann sayings. In this one I can hide behind that english in not my first language

One thing was funny, the hippo - river hourse. I never knew that hippopotamus acturally ment river hourse, but it really made sence, since the Icelandic word for it means "flood hourse"!
