    For me, it's Byssinia instead of Bissinia, but that's all.

    I fixed the maps, I'll post them once we have decided how to vote.

    Well guys, what do you want to do?

    A. Voting for a full list, that means you have to pick one of the maps and stick to all the names on it.
    B. Voting for a full list of oceans, but individual names for continents. (To keep the sea naming structure of each map)
    C. Voting for individual names for every item, mixing all the maps.

    But you would end up with Ocean and Oceanus mixed.

    Being a submitter of the names, I'm not sure if I want to join the voting.
    That would be a bit selfish of me choosing my own names:p

    the problem is that most of possible voters have contributed with names... if we do not participate... no one will vote...

    Before we have the results: if there are for example 3 votes for Dumea, 2 votes for Dumia and 4 votes for Discania, I think the winner should be Dumea and not Discania since 5 people voted for the same word if you look at the pronunciation. Do you agree with that?

    I agree with your proposal. That would apply to others as well.
