Czechia: Czech Republic Plans to Change Name

0

The Czech Republic is planning to change its name to “Czechia” to make it easier for companies and sports teams to use it on products and clothing.

The European country will retain its full name but Czechia will become the official short geographic name, as “France” is to “The French Republic”.Czechia

If approved by parliament, the country’s new name will be lodged with the United Nations.

Along with Slovakia, the Czech Republic was established when Czechoslovakia broke in two in 1993.

Some of the Czech Republic’s best-known exports, including its Pilsner Urquell beer and ice hockey team, currently use the word “Czech”.

However, “Czech” is an adjective and cannot properly be used as a name for the country.

Some have criticized “Czechia” as ugly, or too similar to “Chechnya”, the semi-autonomous Russian republic.
