You wrote: 'someone earlier on this list indicated that the name
'Eurasian chess' implies a chauvinistic western standing, and the writer

You are reading way too much into what that person wrote. All he/she wrote
was 'Hmmmm...so what would an 'Asiropean Chess' look like? :-)' There
has never been any suggestion from anyone but you that the name 'Eurasian
Chess' implies any kind of chauvinism. And it's a ridiculous idea. The
simple fact is that eurasian is a real English word and asiropean is not.
