Yes, Bela means white in russian and of course Rus is referring to Russia, but did you know that Rus comes from the Scandinavian word for red? So Belarus literally means White Red

"Rus" doesn't refer to Russia. It refers to Kievan Rus - the country that existed long before the name Russia was even invented by Peter the Great in the 18th century. Kievan Rus had its center in Kyiv - the present day capital of Ukraine. So Belarus has nothing to do with Russia, while Russia has nothing to do with the rich and stormy history of Kievan Rus.

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?

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.

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 The people living on the Falklands, whether you think it is an outdated piece of British colonialism or not, are overwhelmingly happy to remain as they are, rather than become the Malvinas under the administration of Argentina.

DudiJG, I had to study the Dominican Republic and it actually is majority of the island. Haiti is the other half, and collectively the island is called Hispaniola. I am a mere Yr7 student, yet even i know that.

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.

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

All this talk about Burma versus Myanmar was irritating me, so I did some research into it. Burma refers to the largest ethnic group in the country, and is the written or literary name of the country. In languages like Burmese they have different versions of words for when they are written and when they are spoken. Myanmar is the spoken variant of the country's name. The official name of the country was the "Union of Burma" until 1989, but has since been changed to the "Union of Myanmar" and is now the "Republic of the Union of Myanmar." Myanmar was chosen as its official name to avoid singling out the minority ethnic groups of the country. Myanmar is its official name. Burma is accepted as a variant of the name. All this being said, if it were I would include Burma in the B quiz and Myanmar in the M quiz to avoid the dispute. :D
