Second biggest country in the world running out of original names

Canada is so large a country that it does not have enough names to contain all of its wonderfulness. That’s why it has two Maritime cities with almost the same names, St. John’s Newfoundand and St. John New Brunswick. It also used to have two professional football teams named the Saskatchewan Roughriders and the Ottawa Rough Riders, who have since gone defunct. A new team in Ottawa is called the Redblacks.
