Ankara is the capital of Turkey and the country's second largest city after Istanbul. Ankara has a population over 4 million people. It was formerly known as Angora. The Hittites gave it the name Ankuwash before 1200 BC, the Galatians and Romans called it Ancyra, and in the classical, Hellenistic, and Byzantine periods it was known as Ánkyra. Ankara is an important commercial and industrial city. It is the center of the Turkish Government, and houses all foreign embassies. The city was famous for its long-haired Angora goat and its prized wool (mohair), a unique breed of cat (Angora cat), white rabbits and their prized wool (Angora wool), pears, honey, and the region's muscat grapes.


Kirbyville is a city in Jasper County, Texas, United States. The population was 2,142 at the 2010 census. The town was first established in 1895 when the Gulf, Beaumont and Kansas City railroad reached the site. It was first named Kirby for John Henry Kirby, a lumber businessman who intended to use the site for building a facility to market his lumber. The post office was established the same year, but the name was changed to Kirbyvillewhen it was discovered that a town called Kirby already existed.
