Interesting work, Dhill,

There are several things I take from this:

(1) The Egyptians would have described the vicinity Atlantis was situated in as "the Western Ocean," meaning that whatever word the Greeks would have had for it would have been applied, meaning it could have not been within the Pillars of Hercules.

(2) The greater landmass around the Azores that existed around the Ice Age would have been approximately the size of Spain.

(3} The flora of the Azores resembles that of Atlantis, even if there is, like Essan says, still some question as to where the elephants came from.

(4} Local legends of the Azores clearly embrace the Atlantis story, much as the people do in Santorini.
