The 31 Day August Quiz Challenge

This month I have decided to run a quiz.  Some of the questions you may know the answer to immediately, others you may need to go searching to find the answer to the question.  Each day in August a new question will be displayed below.  If you manage to answer a question correctly you will receive 2 entries into the draw.  If you get the question wrong you will receive 1 entry (just for giving it a try).  All entries will be pooled at the end of the month and one winner drawn at random.
The competition started on 1st August 2017 and runs until the end of the month.  The last question will be shown on 31st August 2017, with the winner being announced here on 1st September.  The winner will then have 24 hours to claim their £10 cash prize.

Hi Daniel, the city now known as New York was named Nouvelle (New) Angouleme in the early 16th century, & not re-named New Amsterdam until the early 17th century.

Sorry, just re-read the question & note that it says ‘former’ not original name!!

Hi Daniel, I’m enjoying this competition, thanks; I think you’ve forgotten to post the answer to yesterday’s question.

There seems to be some dispute about where soda bread originated but the majority of reputable sites say it was in with the Native Americans

Stuart

Soda bread originated in the USA in 1796.

In Europe it appeared in the mid 19th century

I see that you give Elvis Presley’s middle name as ‘Aaron’.According to my ‘reference books,hiis name is spelt ‘Aron’.I remember thinking it a weird way to spell it when I firsst came across it as a teenager.
