The state of Rhode Island is not an island. It may have a few small islands though.

Naples Italy is actually Neápolis [in Greek], or Neapolitan, which translates as the 'New City'. It was founded by the Greeks, over 2,800 years ago. It was not new to the Romans, nor to any of the succeeding dozen empires who each conquered it later. But it is still called the New City.
