Greece: Expect variable place-name transliterations

Examples: Agios or Ayios, Georgios or Yiorgos. Also, the English version may differ from the local Greek version: Corfu is known as Kerkyra; island capitals are often just called Chora (town); and Athens’s boulevard Vasilissis Sofias (Queen Sofia) was renamed Eleftheriou Venizelou, but you’ll likely get blank stares if you call it that.
