Un homme se leva et demanda permission d'appeler les fidèles à la prière.
Permission lui fût donnée:
- Vous pouvez les appeler, tant que vous les appelez à Dieu et non à vous-même.
- Mais comment saurais-je la différence?
- Si ça vous dérange que quelqu'un d'autre les appelle à Dieu, c'est que vous les appelez à vous-même.

well ithri at that time was no algerie, i just wrote what i found, at that time libyia, tunis, algerie and parts of moroc and muratania were all one country, but was interesting to see how some of our village name has stayed while we were thinking that most were from arabic names come to find out many were from roman names

Lol Chaouia thanks for the news :D
Then maybe you should've used NA or anything else and not "Algerie" in your post's title.
My comments are related to the fact you implied by the title that these cities are NOW in today's Algeria
