The Czech Republic is planning to adopt a snappy short-form name to ensure it has an easier time home and around the world. It wants to be officially known the noun 'Czechia' instead incorrectly the adjective 'Czech'. Government officials say this more concise name will avoid confusion what to call the country. They are tired being called erroneous names such as Czecho or Czechland. A foreign office spokesperson said: "Our hope is that this step will overcome the problems we face distorting the name and that the correct terms will dissolve general knowledge." The government will seek a formal change the United Nations database country names.

The Czech Republic government said it is following the example what many countries the world have done decades. A spokesman said the Commonwealth Australia and the Republic of France are commonly known as Australia and France. The length the three-word name, 'the Czech Republic,' already leads to short cuts being made. A leading beer maker states its labels that its product is 'brewed Plzen - Czech'. Some national sports teams drop the article 'the' and put just two words their shirts - 'Czech Republic'. Foreign minister Lubomir Zaoralek said the name 'Czechia' is not widely popular but he said there seems to be no other alternative.
