There's a notable language feature, that Vulcan is connected with Volcanoes, hence volcanology being that type of geology that is to do with the study of volcanoes. Landmarks with "Volcan" in the name in Spanish-speaking places, are volcanoes, eg. Volcan Arenal in Costa Rica, Volcan Baru the highest point in Panama, etc.

There are many other VULCAN type entities. They are often either fire-related (ovens, fires, etc) and/or have some geological connection, or have some relation to the high-minded ideals of the race of people noted in Star Trek.

If your company/organisation is VULCAN, you can get it added to this list. e-mail
