Is there a naming format? The reason I ask is because of the sheer number of changes over the years. I see the era Persia=>Iran. That time frame could include Babylon=>Iraq. Also, communist nations Checkoslovakia  => Republic of Check and Slovakia, West Geremany EaSt Germany => Germany, Palestine => Israel, Yugoslavia =>etc.--[[User:Jpatt|jpatt]] 14:47, 8 December 2008 (EST)

We're doing great on this. Most of the countries seem to be in Africa, and no one picked up on Ivory Coast changing to Cote D'Ivoire - which technically, is just a translation rather than a name change.

What we need next are the years in which each name change occurred, and maybe a nice table to format it all. --Ed Poor Talk 13:45, 8 December 2008 (EST)

How detailed do you want, Ed: does United Kingdom of Great britain and Ireland => United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland (1927) count? Bugler 13:47, 8 December 2008 (EST)

LOL, I was thinking mainly of the name changes where you'd think a brand new country suddenly appeared on the map if you didn't know otherwise. Not too many Westerners in my acquaintance could name all 44 African countries; I'm not even sure I could name all the countries in North America. --Ed Poor Talk 14:18, 8 December 2008 (EST)
OK, a more serious question. What about multiple renamings, eg Belgian Congo => Zaire => DR Congo. Two separate entries, for Belgian Congo => Zaire and Zaire => DR Congo, or one string of three, listed under B? (and we might get some longer strings) Bugler 14:29, 8 December 2008 (EST)
