Mediterranean means BETWEEN LAND, not the middle of the earth. It's between the three major continents that were known at the time (Africa, Asia, and Europe.)

German name. Österreich is derived from Old High German Ostarrîchi. ... Old High German rihhi had the meaning of "realm, domain".

If you claim Aus or Öst don’t mean East then you’re just an ignorant troll.

Austria / Österreich was the eastern realm of the Franks, and then the Holy Roman Empire. The earlier Roman Empire stretched further east into the Levant.

Austria was originally the Marchia orientalis, or eastern frontier province, of the Duchy of Bavaria, given to the ruling Baberberg family by Charlemagne. Thy had come from Slavic Bamberg but had lost power there while retaining it in Bavaria. The original "Austria" was only a tiny corner of today's country.

I hate being pedantic, but all three definitions are prevalent in everyday language.

Land, earth, and world are the first three translations of terra.

For ‘Mediterranean’ R9 has the better translation.

Medi/medium most often means middle. (As OP notes it can be translated as ‘center’ but Romans would more likely use ‘centrum’ for center.)

Similarly, terra is usually translated as land, ground, and yes, earth – but more in a generic sense than Earth as a planet. Romans would not have typically used ‘terra’ to refer to the world.

R9’s “Between the land” or “in the middle of the land” is a more accurate translation than “center of the world” – which from the Roman perspective would have been the city of Rome itself. By the way, Romans also referred to the Mediterranean as “Mare Nostrum” or “Our Sea.”

R27 – I’m guessing it’s been a while since you’ve taken Latin in school?
