Mesopotamia means" the land between rivers." It is sometimes called the fertile crescent because on a map the fertile land forms a crescent- like shape.

Mesopotamia occupies a third of the fertile crescent, the easternmost third to be exact. It extends from the end of the Persian Gulf up through Syria and then down through Palestine almost to Egypt. It is crescent shaped. There is a desert between the two legs.

The Tigris and Euphrates Rivers are the rivers that border Mesopotamia, not the Fertile Crescent.

Mesopotamia is the area between the Euphrates and the Tigris. It literally means 'between the rivers'. The Fertile Crescent is a crescent-shaped area that stretches from the Mediterranean coast along the Euphrates and the Tigris to the Persian Gulf.

Mesopotamia was known as the land between the two rivers(Euphrates and Tigris rivers). It was also part of the Fertile Crescent.

Mesopotamia literally means "Land Between Two Rivers" in Greek because it was between the Tigris and Euphrates Rivers. There are also two nicknames historians give Mesopotamia, the "Fertile Crescent" (because the Mesopotamian civilization was shaped like a crescent and the land was fertile) and the "Cradle of Civilization" (because civilization was "born" in Mesopotamia).

No. The "Fertile Crescent" was in Mesopotamia, the land between the Tigris and the Euphrates rivers. Considering that that's modern-day Iraq, it doesn't seem so fertile any more.

The "Fertile Crescent' and "The Cradle of Civilizations"

Mesopotamia has a few nick names. One is the Land Between Two Rivers because it was located between the Tigris and Euphrates rivers. It is also called the Fertile Crescent because the soil was fertile.

No. Etymologically, "Mesopotamia" refers to the land between the two rivers, the Tigris and Euphrates.Israel was, however, part of the Fertile Crescent (which is not the same thing as Mesopotamia).

Well, the word Mesopotamia in Greek means Land Between two Rivers; but another name for Mesopotamia would be the Fertile Crescent. -Hope this helped? (:
