Toponymy - Argentina and the toponymy of the Falkland Islands and SGSSI



Geographical areas and settlements in the Falkland Islands, South Georgia and the South Sandwich Islands


Argentina claims the United Kingdom, sovereignty rights over the Falkland Islands, South Georgia and the South Sandwich Islands.
Argentina uses different names to refer to certain geographical areas and settlements, which are presented here for reference only, since none of these names is used within the islands. The different names are presented in two lists, the first sorted by the name used within the archipelago (and adopted almost worldwide) and the second, sorted under the name in Argentina. The use of these names in the Falkland Islands may be considered a provocation.
