I don't think so...at least, not in English. From Wikipedia:

"Azincourt (French pronunciation: ​[azɛ̃kuʁ]; historically, Agincourt /ˈæʒɪnkʊr/ in English) is a commune in the Pas-de-Calais department in northern France. The Battle of Agincourt (1415) took place nearby."

I've never heard the battle referred to as "Azincourt".

Yannosch, you're technically correct - the battle was near Azincourt; Agincourt is more than 200 miles away, near Strasbourg. But the battle has always been called 'Agincourt', and we won it, so we're right. If anyone is planning to visit the battlefield - don't trust your satnav.
