A Royal Navy Captain made his 3rd and final exploration here. He nicknamed it and its relatives after 1st Lord of the Admiralty who sponsored his voyages here, also the namesake of a food item I look forward to on my return to Earth. Name it!

Captain James Cook named the islands after the Earl of (Sandwich). We today call it Hawaii the big island! Enjoy your sandwich back home.
this island is the Hawaii where the navigator Captain James Cook, explored and cartographer of the Royal Navy died on February 14, 1779 in a fight with the Hawaiians. The islands that form Hawaii is historically known by the name of Sandwich Islands.
Sandwich Islands was a name given to the Hawaiian Islands by James Cook on one of his voyages in the 1770s. James Cook named the islands after John Montagu, 4th Earl of Sandwich, a supporter of Cook's voyages.

It is a beautiful photo of the Sandwich Island which is famous for having the largest penguin colonies in the world.
Like Shinmoedake, where 'dake' is something honorific indicating mountain. Don't say Mount S.
Natives speak it Hawai-i and i wonder if that last 'i' is for island, like 'ø' in dansk ? Mau-i
