‘Nobody calls it Czechia’: Czech Republic’s new name fails to catch on | World news | The Guardian

Six months after Czechia was adopted, citizens of central European country seem in little doubt over what it should be called. The locals aren’t buying it.

Czech Republic is still the official long form, and Czechia is meant as something of a short and informal nickname, like “the US” or “Britain.”  As far as mapping goes, our team of crack cartographic editors think we should stick with Czech Republic for now because it’s not “wrong” and we can always switch over if Czechia-mania sweeps the world.
