Amerigo Vespucci, a Florentine, described the lands he saw on several voyages, which led to the use of the name America (after Amerigo) for the new lands. Christopher Columbus was the first one who discovered the lands of America but then he sticked to his belief na ang nahanap niyang lands ay sa Asia, and not America. Pero maya-maya, pumasok sa scene si Amerigo Vespucci and proved na ang lands na akala nila all along ay Asia, ay hindi Asia kundi America and that's where America got its name, kay Amerigo (America).

Hope it helps =)
