Considering its official name is Myanmar, I don't think "Burma" should be included.

France could pass a law saying that its name is now "Baorlasdf". It wouldn't change the fact that its name is France.

You wouldn't put Siam on a 'S countries' quiz!

Actually it would. Lots of countries change their name, it's kind of baffling that this site seems to have an official position against accepting the name change of Myanmar... I mean, yes, it was changed by the junta in power. How does that make it different than every single other country on Earth?

Many countries do not recognize Myanmar. Actually many Burmese do not recognize Myanmar. It's not like this website is an outlier.

The Chairman of the State Peace and Development Council of the Republic of the Union of Myanmar passes on his regards and says he is pleased you don't want to hear about his fine country because he wants to write you about it instead. He asks if you would host Jetpunk on a Burmese server so he can respectfully make the appropriate edits.

It would change it. Big shame certain sites and governments seem to have issues with calling things a certain way. Its been myanmar for quite a long time now and should be called that, whether we like it or not. Its not our country

When Burma changed its name to Myanmar whilst it was recognised by the UN some nations governments have still not recognised the change including the US, and as this is a US site.....

Is this a US State Department website, or why do we care?

however, the country is known by both names so either one is correct.
Jul 15, 2013

Yeah quit arguing LukeD is right. And who said the names had to be official? In other quizzes UK is accepted for United Kingdom, because it is known by both names.

That's not really a relevant example, beastloader, given the UK is just an abbreviation of United Kingdom. It would more be like accepting Great Britain, although that isn't correct given it doesn't include Northern Ireland.

Here's my take on it: Burma was pretty much the British colonial name. Myanmar is recognized as the official name by Wikipedia and the EU. The National Geographic map on the wall says "Myanmar". People just don't like to call it Myanmar because the name is "against democracy". Okay, so during the Cold War we don't call it the USSR, since it's against democracy? It just doesn't make sense. Last time I checked, one Parliament member cannot singlehandedly rename a country.

I like call Burma, Ceylon, Persia, Siam
also Bombai, Calcutta (Kalkuta), Canton, Madras, Nankin, Peking, Pusan
It sounds much better (idk why english names are removed)
But I call Haiti, instead of Hispaniola (old spanish name)
Falklands

Persia(n Empire) was much larger than Iran though. Around half of Hispaniola is the Dominican Republic so you'd be wrong to refer to Haiti that way. The people living on the Falklands, whether you think it is an outdated piece of British colonialism or not, are overwhelmingly happy to remain as they are, rather than become the Malvinas under the administration of Argentina.

Great username milk. I disagree, only because Burma is a lot easier to spell.

As others have said, it is most likely due to the US not recognising the change of name. Our Quizmaster agrees with that opinion, so this site still uses Burma. If more Burmese people agreed with the change, rather than the ones with guns, I'm sure their standing among nations would change and Myanmar would be a more universally-accepted term.

Right - because the quizmaster knows what the Burmese people think.

It sprung to my mind, but given you have recognised that the actual name starts with -A-ntigua, the answer is obvious.

The Myanmar comment in the tagline confused me- I thought you were saying you wouldn't count "Myanmar" (or alternate name) as a "B" country so don't bother arguing. I put it anyway so no complaints.

Any frequent reader of comments here would know QM has had a long-standing position on calling the country Burma.

Since Wikipedia is used here, let's see what it has to say: Burma, officially the Republic of the Union of Myanmar, commonly shortened to Myanmar... Both it's official and common names include Myanmar, and neither include Burma
