    This guy is an idiot.
    North Point was named in as early as 1846 in Lt Thomas Collinson’s Map refering to the northernmost point of HK Island protruding into the harbour, Chinese name 北角 was added accordingly meaning baically the same, why change it to “North Cape”?
    Prince Edward was named after Prince Edward VIII, later Duke of Windsor following his abdication. The Chinese name only used the “Prince” part hence太子. What is the point of discarding a good name.
    Some of the originial place names have been changed because of bad connotations, the present names bear no particular meaning just some nice words with the same / similar sound, eg Lok Fu was named Tiger Rock before because long time ago there were tigers roaming there and eating people and Tiu Keng Leng was called Hanging Ridge (A gweilo hanged himself there after his business folded), not Tune View Ridge. So what does Tune View mean? Just nonsense.
    The guy is a laugh, he has no historical knowledge about Hong Kong and he also mixed up with the meaning of some of the Chinese words, eg 河(river, stream etc)and 涌(estuary).

  • Hong Kong is better translated as ‘Fragrant Harbour’ than ‘Scent Harbour’. ‘Hong’ is a pleasant smell, not just any scent.
