The ancient Greek word for "bear" was άρκτος.
The Arctic is named after the animal; it's the place where bears are.
Naturally, when you find a place at the opposite side of the globe from the Arctic and where there are no bears, it's the anti-Arctic - in other words, Antarctica.
So the Arctic is Bears Place, and Antarctica is Not Bears Place.
@noelle It's actually named after the bear constellations (Ursa Minor & Major indicate where the north is), but it also works with polar bears.
An instance for ghosts and shadows.
