Hello,

I want to write a question about where the Philippnes got its name from. The answer is the name was in honor of King Philip II of Spain.

Can I ask the following (in a formal way)?

Q: The Philippines received its name in honor of
which Spanish king?
A: King Philip II of Spain

Does the question make sense and grammatically correct?

Thank you.
