    Europe is the English name for the large peninsula on the Western side of the continent of Eurasia.  This is also known as "Europa" in many languages.  Europa is also the official name of one of the large satellites of Jupiter, and of an asteroid.

    Your question is impossible to answer for two reasons. The first is you do not tell us about what you are asking. Secondly, you do not say in what language you would like the answer. Unless your antecedent 'it' is known your question cannot be answered.

    In what language?

    In several languages outside English, both the continent on earth and the moon of Jupiter are Europa

  • 4 months ago

    There are two possible origins of these words. The continent of Europe is derived from the Greek word Europa, which meant "the broad land of the west." Likewise. "Asia" means the "land of the rising sun", and "Africa" means the "land to the south". 

    The Greek word Europa could also refer to the Phoenician Princess Europa, who was one of the mistresses of Zeus/Jupiter, along with two other maidens, Io and Callisto. Jupiter/Zeus also had a young gay male who was Jupiter's homosexual mistress, named Ganymede. These four names are immortalized as the names of the four large moons of the planet Jupiter. 

    Cheers

    Depends bon what "it" is.

    England, France, and Spain are Europe.

    The moon of Jupiter is Europa.

    Yes it is.  And it's Европе as well.  What I'm trying to tell you is that it depends on the language how that continent is spelled and pronounced in that language.
