Hi ya,

 

  It's arguable this is not a bug but it makes it hard to find things by their alternative names.

  It turns out that Palmyra is listed as "Tadmor [Palmyra]".

  It would really help if matches for typed names were also sought in the alternatives in [].

 

Thx

Growing up in Perth Western Australia, Palmyra was the suburb just down the road 😁😁😁

So likely not a trade route from Babylon to Egypt bypassing the Mitanni in the 15th century BCE then :)

 

Curious though - I wonder how it got its name. Mind you Palmyra, Syria seems to have had several other names - Tadmor, Tadmur. Don't know how that happened either.

 

Thx

The original developers gave it the name "Palmyra Estate" according to these archives

It is also one of the few Perth suburbs to boast a Rugby Union side in a state dominated by Australian Rules Football. The meat works may have also enticed those traders from the 1500's BCE.

Interesting. Didn't realize we had the old papers online at the National Library. Apparently the ran a competition : 

Palmyra

Palmyra, meaning City of Palms, was a famous Syrian city which was a trading centre on the trading routes of Ancient Europe. Its ancient name was Tadmor, but it was called Palmyra by the Romans who ranked it fourth in the seven wonders of the ancient world. The name Palmyra was chosen from a competition run by the Melville Road Board and the street names chosen, eg Zenobia, Cleopatra, Solomon, Aurelian, Antony etc, are names associated with Ancient History in the Middle East area.

There are various competing theories as to the meaning of the name (for the original in Syria) though there are palms there.
