Wow, total lightbulb moment! I knew both words "nam" and "cực", but it never occurred to me that together it sounds like "southern extremity". That makes so much sense! Thank you!

Apparently the challenge to getting this answer right is mostly being able to spell 'Antarctica" correctly in English. : (
