Fed up with long name, Czech Republic says call us 'Czechia'

The Czech Republic on Thursday said it was tired of its long and unwieldy name and would like to be called “Czechia” from now on. “We recommend using the single-word name in foreign languages in situations when it’s not necessary to use the country’s formal name: sports events, marketing purposes etc.,” the president, prime minister and other Czech officials said in a statement. Foreign Minister Lubomir Zaoralek told reporters the government decided to take action because “there have been distortions and misspellings”.
