Oceania

The term was coined as Océanie ca. 1812 by geographer Conrad Malte-Brun. The word Océanie derives from the Greek word okeanòs, ocean. The term is sometimes used more specifically than in the geopolitical conception, to denote a continent comprising Australia and proximate islands. (source: Wikipedia)
