One syllable ones: France, Greece, and Spain. They sound really sharp.
Not Chad though, that sounds horrible.

Yes I like some of the older names such as Alba for Scotland and Erin for Ireland. The Roman names for Scotland was Caledonia and Ireland was Hibernia, Britannia for Britain. Ireland was also known as Scotia by the Romans.

I always liked the sound of Argentina. They have possibly my favorite national flag, too.

( Off topic), I am sure Albion for the ancient name of Britain, or a secondary name, comes from the white flower that grew on the many orchards that would have covered what is now Kent, East Sussex, Vale of Evesham, Herefordshire, Somerset. My guess is an outsider coined it upon coming to what is now Somerset, pre-roman times, traders who prob came in Spring and just saw acres of white flowers. ( Cant answer the Alba theory as I don't know any Caledonian cider !)
