For some reason, we call it by it's french name, Cote d'Ivoire. Which is actually the name I learned in school, so Jetpunk is following the rules established by the Man.

I believe the reason we call it Cote d'Ivoire is because that's the country's official name and they prefer to use it over the English version. Of course, we call plenty of other countries by their English rather than native names (Germany and China, for example) so I'm not sure what makes the Ivory Coast special in that regard.

No they didn't - it is called Côte d'Ivoire everywhere on www.fifa.com. The reason it is because its government changed the country's name to Côte d'Ivoire back in 1986!

But Timor-Leste is East Timor? And North Korea doesn't call itself "North" Korea - it's the Democratic People's Republic of Korea. I think it shouldnt be about what the country wants to be called, we should use some standard. Like maybe the CIA Factbook - but they say Timor-Leste too.

Cote d'Ivoire is how the country is referred to in the list of UN members in the English-language section of the UN's website. That list uses the English-language versions for Germany and the Netherlands. Cote d'Ivoire is hardly the first country to be more referred to by its foreign-language title in English. We rarely hear of The Saviour (El Salvador), Saint Thomas (Sao Tome) or Saint Marinus (San Marino) in their English forms, either.

It would make sense for the English translation to be the English name for a country. It's not like we call Germany Deutschland or Poland Polska.

I start to think of other things, random things beginning with 'I', my brain quickly goes from blank nothingness to overdrive and I cant stop thinking of random things, internet, ice cream... then start to think if this is in Europe I will be really, really annoyed (I am from UK and so have fairly decent knowledge of European maps, flags etc.) Then think if its European and a bit of an unknown obscure one ill let myself off.

I do understand the reasoning behind the argument that we should all say the names the way the country themselves says them, but that can be tricky, especialy when the two countries in question don't use the same alphabet or all of the same sounds in their languages. It's not hard, in this case, to call it Cote d'Ivoire, but not all native-language names transliterate so easily. I do grant also that some English-language names for places are quite different than what the place calls itself in its native language. But there can be a lot of good reasons for that. One great example: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Names_of_Germany

I would suggest keeping it as Cote d'Ivoire. I know it makes people mad, but the government of Cote d'Ivoire has stated that no translation should be used - they want Cote d'Ivoire to be the official name in all languages. Unless I'm mistaken, which I may be.

This is the Number 1 quiz of any kind anywhere in the world for making people kick themselves. My father and I randomly discovered this one day before it was even a quiz--he just said there aren't that many "I" countries, and started to name them. It took both of us forever to think of Iran and Iraq, even though here in the states they're both in the news constantly. Everyone else I've ever given this little quiz to has taken forever to come up with one or two that are really obvious (in fact, they're all easy).

Because Cote d'Ivoire wants to be called Cote d'Ivoire instead of Ivory Coast, just like we call Costa Rica Costa Rica instead of Rich coast, Sierra Leone Sierra Leone instead of Sierra of Lions and Tajikistan Tajikistan instead of Homeland of the Tajikis.

I've been meaning to for a long time. It all started when Cape Verde decided that their name was going to be "Cabo Verde" in all languages. This forced me to reconsider our naming choices. In almost all cases, we use the colloquial name instead of the official name. Thus "China", not "People's Republic of China", etc... Using Ivory Coast is more consistent with this.

It really is funny to see how many people REFUSE to say "Cote d'Ivoire" instead of "Ivory Coast" as though it's some sort of matter of principle, and yet don't complain about Costa Rica, Puerto Rico, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Ecuador, El Salvador, Notre Dame....
