Do the people of the US realise they named their bird after a country?

Please bear in mind that our spelling is merely a transliteration.

I prefer to spell the name of the country the same way most Turks write it in English: Turkiye.

The word "turquoise" comes from the name of the Turkish people, since the stone was often sold by Turkish merchants in Medieval times.

No, it is not named after a bird.

Grow up, OP.

In romanian we have the world 'pula' which is the ugly(swearing) version of penis.
In Croatia there is the town called pula, and in botswana the national currency is pula too.
Romanian is the best language in the world.

Wild turkey is one smart bird

Contrary to popular belief, the wild turkey is not a stupid creature. "They are nothing like the domesticated bird. They're extremely smart and very cautious.
