comment Why “Greater Toronto” rather than “Great Toronto”
@DCShannon, it is how one looks at the issue. When I said smaller areas, I was not speaking of the total population or area that identifies with the well-known area, but rather each the smaller enclaves that surround the larger, more well-known place. When one looks at them in aggregate, they are larger than and more populous than the more well-known areas.

comment What will the third parent be called?
@WS2, It's a moot point. All the Mitochondria is inherited from the mother directly. The father contributes none of the DNA. The DNA in question does not deal with character traits. There is no sexual mixing of DNA like in chromosomal DNA. The Mitochondria deals exclusively with energy production (ATP) in the cell, along with calcium regulation.
