When searching for "AME*" over country names with searchlang=en I was expecting english results only: eg: America

but I'm getting: "Ameerika UEhendriigid"
which is apparently Estonian,

JSON result:
lng: "45",
geonameId: 174982,
countryCode: "AM",
name: "Ameni",
toponymName: "Republic of Armenia",
lat: "40.25",
fcl: "A",
fcode: "PCLI"
lng: "-98.5",
geonameId: 6252001,
countryCode: "US",
name: "Ameerika UEhendriigid",
toponymName: "United States",
lat: "39.76",
fcl: "A",
fcode: "PCLI"

If Anyone can point out what i'm doing wrong or confirm the issue so I can move on and return to this later.
(also, i have a premium account, is there a way to get support involved? if so where do i report?)

Thank you!
