The Rhein River

translation services usa

DSC_0986British Airways’ in-flight map shows the Rhein River although every child knows it is the River Rhein. It’s also the River Thames but it is the Colorado River to you and me.  The Murray River runs through South Australia, and we never managed a paddle in the River Ouse yet. If anything, it’s the River Severn but the Mississippi River, I think.

Is there a right and a wrong at all?

Is it convention? Grammatical rule? My own free spirit and habit?

Help, please!
