You may remember Belgrade's newest bridge that I showed you several times before. You may also remember that there was a contest to give it a name. This bridge joins New Belgrade and Cukarica, passing over the river island Ada Ciganlija ('ada' means 'river island').
Lots of names were suggested, some silly, some for famous Serbian figures, such as Patriarch Pavle, Prime Minister Zoran Djindjic, inventor and engineer Nikola Tesla, and others. Belgrade's airport is already named for Nikola Tesla, but the other choices were good ones.
Well, you'll never guess what its name will be! "Bridge On Ada"! (Most na Adi) Linguists were quick to point out that the bridge should at least be called "Bridge Over Ada" (Most preko Ade), since of course that's where it passes, and not 'na Adi', since it isn't on the island.
Personally, since I frequently see it as in the above photo, I'd have called it "Bridge Whose One Entrance is Near the Inflatable Dalmatian".
Definitely a better name.
