Colony
In politics and history , a COLONY is a territory under the immediate political control of a state , distinct from the home territory of the sovereign. For colonies in antiquity , city-states would often found their own colonies. Some colonies were historically countries, while others were territories without definite statehood from their inception. The METROPOLITAN STATE is the state that rules the colony. In Ancient Greece , the city that founded a colony was known as the metropolis . "Mother country" is a reference to the metropolitan state from the point of view of citizens who live in its colony. There is a United Nations list of Non-Self-Governing Territories . Unlike a puppet state or satellite state , a colony has no independent international representation, and its top-level administration is under direct control of the metropolitan state

Oxford English Dictionary
, a namesake is also defined as "a person or thing having the same name as another". CONTENTS * 1 History * 2 Usage * 3 Family * 4 Culture * 5 Concepts * 6 See also * 7 References HISTORYThe word is first recorded in the mid-seventeenth century, and probably comes from the phrase "for name's sake". USAGEIn general, the second recipient of a name, named for the first, is said to be the namesake of the first. The attribution can, however, go in the opposite direction, with namesake referring to the original holder of the name (the eponym ). Strictly speaking, a namesake is only a person named for another person—i.e., for the sake of the other's name, to keep it alive
