      Complaining about foreigners using their own exonyms for your country is the most moronic whiny bullshit ever imo, but I kinda can see the point in not using bohemia and holland (regions) to refer to the whole country they belong to. It just causes confusion.

    >It's still Bohemia to me
    The only issue with this is that Bohemia is just one of the three regions of the Czech Republic. Even historically speaking, Bohemia wouldn't mean the same thing as the Lands of the Bohemian Crown. We have a similar situation in our native tongue - Čechy means Bohemia while Česká republika or Česko means Bohemia + Moravia + Silesia.

        It's not really thought of like that nowadays, but historically the marquis of Moravia and the duke of Silesia were vassals of the king of Bohemia within the larger structure of the crown lands.

      We know. However, the term “Bohemia” in the United States was always used to refer to all Czechs and Czech-inhabited lands, including Moravians. We made no distinction between Czech and Bohemian. That was the original guy’s point.

      Think of it like if we called all Brits, regardless of English, Scottish, Welsh, Cornish, or Irish heritage, just “English”

    >It's still Peking to me
    Peking is supposed to be pronounced the same as Beijing, the Wade Giles translation system just had nonsensical rules like "pronounce a p as a b, but don't use a b, use a p because it will amuse me, also use a k but pronounce it like a j"

    Obviously people didn't know about these pointless rules so just read it the way any normal person would. But if you actually knew the rules of wade giles when you saw Peking in print you'd know to pronounce it as bejing.
