The clue to the Timor-Leste answer would be more appropriately be "Name of this country as declared by its government, in every language". The only reason that Timor-Leste's name is the same in all six of the UN's official languages (English, French, Spanish, Russian, Chinese and Arabic) is simply a consequence of that.
