    Hell I could be first and let me tell those that follow – don’t copy because this is mostly a guessing game.

    1. Chaucer
    2. Verdi – had to go with one I could spell.
    3. Pass
    4. Tree Tomato
    5. Near Cromwell – but I cheated out of curiosity to see where it was.

  2. Andrei says:

    (1) Albert Einstein
    (2) Antonio Vivaldi
    (3) One of my daughters is called Nadezhda (usually called Nadia) which means the same thing. In English it is not so pretty sounding Hope
    (4) yukky old tree tomato
    (5) Somewhere in the South Island, given the quiz masters location, I’ll hazard North Otago.
