It is quite interesting to note that what we now know as the Peloponnese, 
with its wonderful bulbous flora, was formerly known as The Morea.

Here is a snippet from Wikipedia, where there is plenty more...

"The Morea (Greek: Μωρέας or Μωριάς, French: Morée, Italian: Morea, Turkish: 
Mora) was the name of the Peloponnese peninsula in southern Greece during 
the Middle Ages and the early modern period. It also referred to a Byzantine 
province in the region, known as the Despotate of Morea."
