Current Placenames

Monro was very erratic in his spelling of place names. In this edition we have standardised them at the spelling used in the early 20th Century, except for those which have long-established English versions e.g. Munich not München. After the First and Second World Wars, many of these names were changed, mostly for nationalistic or political reasons. The modern names of these places are given here.
