It doesn't help that that they're inconsistent about names and meanings (for instance, the "United States of America" vs. just "Mexico", or "Land of the Angles" vs. "Land of the People"), but some are just simply wrong—"Argentina" just means "silvery/silver-colored", nothing about being beside a river or even land.
The Angles/People seems at least somewhat fair to me. "Deutsch" comes from a word that means "people" or "folk". "Angles" comes from a word that means "fishhook".
That's actually disputed. The confirmed angle (pun intended) is that the Angles came from Anglia, roughly in the area of the modern Anglian Peninsula. Anglia itself may mean "narrow land " or "fishhook land" or "land of fishers".

Which plays up how inconsistent the map is about levels of translation—"America" gets not-at-all-literally translated to "Amerigo", but the land-of-the names like "Angles", "Franks", "Slovaks", etc. don't get translated, even though most of those have at least one claimed meaning—and I'd be unsurprised if at least a couple of those translated to "the people", or in the case of Deutsch, "popular/of the people".

Apparently that house was in Milan in 1971.

I would actually go to that theme restaurant. Given how well my tastes map to the average American's, that's probably why it closed.

I'm pretty sure I saw that. Instantly forgettable was my take away.
