山喺海卽係島,亦萬山就係有萬島,寓意好多島。萬山羣島按文理係多餘,羣島列島不過按現代地理學尾綴硬套。

英文叫Great and Little LadroneLandrone Islands,來自葡萄牙文,意味賊島。或者皆因以前有海賊出沒。

範圍[編輯]

萬山原本只係個攏統稱呼,大明大清約指新安香山縣南面諸島,並無好確設指明範圍。十八世紀衞三畏出《Chinese Commercial Guide》,指係Great and Little Ladrone[1],並不包括大嶼山蒲台等近大陸離島及遠處担杆羣島

中華人民共和國定萬山羣島,澳門離島路環氹仔,而香港嘅香港島大嶼山等離島,亦列入其中。之不過日掌如今多指珠海市南海諸島。

萬山有大萬山小萬山

With Tyloo and Santsaou on our left, as we enter from the southward, we have on our right the Great and Little Ladrone, (called Manshan 萬山 or Lo Manshan 老萬山 Ten-thousand hills,) and Potoe; and further east, a little to the southward, commences a line of rocks and islands, of which the Asses' Ears is the most conspicuous point.」
