Have a look on the central Westcoast, you'll find a quite interesting name there. Big Grin

It's obvious to the most I think. Big Grin

But okay, I'll spoiler it: Clan Ranald MacDonald.

Ah, okay... I tend to read them with historian's eyes, however, and not make associations with contemporary pop-culture!

You think of the clown, I think of the sons of Somerled and the mediaeval Lords of the Isles. Big Grin

Nevertheless it's interesting to see where many of the names that are largely known today originally come from. There are some more of those on this map.

You have a HIGH and LOW Sardinia, as well as the island? Tongue

What is the significance of the comarques shown in the west, beyond the provincial border? Shouldn't they be in Aragon, culturally speaking?

What do you mean? I don't see anything about Sardinia here, other than the typical reference to Alguer on the small map about the whole Catalan Lands.

This is a delicate issue and would need a very long explanation. The eastern area of Aragon (called Western Strip in Catalonia) has always been Catalan-speaking, and many here consider them Western Catalans just like the ones in Lleida. In fact, those Catalan-speaking Catalans have a bigger contact with Lleida than with Saragossa. But it's also true that they've been politically Aragonese almost from the start. Not to mention that the Ribagorza is one of the most interesting areas, as it could have been a minicountry of its own, completely transitional between the Catalan and the Aragonese ethnicities. The variety in a few villages along the Isabena river could even be adscribed to either the Catalan or the Aragonese language. Not to mention Benasque, on top of the Ribagorza, which has a microlanguage of its own, between Aragonese, Catalan and Gascon...

So people on that Strip usually consider themselves ethnically Catalan and politically Aragonese.
