That's a very good idea for a quiz. Spelling correction - Ethiopia's former English name was spelt Abyssinia (extra I from what you have). Czechia and Moldova haven't really changed name, just the standard Anglicisation has changed (though very similar units were known as Bohemia-Moravia and Bessarabia in the past).

Czechia has official changed its name from the Czech Republic, and I discovered that Moldavia is just the Spanish and Portuguese spellings for Moldova. Thanks for pointing it out though!

They prefer you use Czechia since 2013, but it's kind of like the Burma/Myanmar name problem so I'll leave it alone for now.
