pet: so i don't know why pennsylvania is called that, but i know that sylvania is latin for "forest", so transylvania means
me: forest of the trans people!!
pet: ...between the forests
me: ah :blobcatgoogly:

@lynnesbian Pennsylvania was named by, and after, its colonial founder, William Penn

@lynnesbian if they had translated the Hungarian name of the land on the other side of the forest (from Hungary) differently, we might now be calling it Ultrasylvania, and many puns would have been lost without a trace

@lynnesbian i would be up for a dracula adaptation that plays on this

@lynnesbian pennsylvania's original colony charter was given to a man called William Penn, so it's just his forest lol.
