Anatolia located in Asia Minor, and part of Turkey today, and located north of modern Syria, and also ancient Phoenicians.
The region has had a history of Indo Europeans, Hittites, Greeks, Troy, Syria, Mitanni, etc.
An-a-tol-ia - Not (for words beginning with vowels) + Not (for words beginning with consonants) + tol (next grade sound for the root "tul", meaning comparable or fathomed + Ness (suffix for Adjective).
Something that is not-not-comparable/fathomed-ness. It is like unfathomable but the use of double negatives repeated twice is a suspect, and some ancients made it repeat twice to give a stress and subtle meaning. Anatolia is located below Black Sea, near Bosporus.
Interesting, Marmaray, in Sanskrit is reduplicative, where the root 'Mri" becomes "Mar", and "Marmaray", that is something akin to "dead-ly". This technique is still used in Hindi today in spoken language. The word itself is alive today in Northen India.
The "tol" could be "tal", and then "atal" becomes rocky, like a mountain, and than the word means "something that is not a rock like". So maybe the land was very porous to the overflow of Black Sea water from the ancient times, which is the case said.
The oldest name of Anatolia is Hattia, place of Hattians.
Some interesting names associated with this place.
* child = pinu;
* god = sapu; - Reverse Reading - Upas or Upaasna (worship).
* moon god = Kasku;
* sun goddess = Wurusemu; Reverse Reading - Umesuruw - Uma Isu Surav/Surya

In Languages, one can do mistakes of reading left to right, when it is suppose to ne left to right, and sometimes down to up, when it is suppose to down to up! See Hammurabi.
The names above, are very close to the meaning listed there but read reversed. This is a strange co-incidence.
