    IMHO it’s an unnecessary change, new name sounds ugly, and, even worse, the all thing has been done without a public citizen consultation. It’s just a mess:
    I agree with the regional development minister, Karla Slechtova, who thinks it is too close to β€œChechnyaβ€œ, making it prone to confusion. Furthermore, as she has recently mentioned, Czech Republic had invested more than $40m in a tourism promotion campaign using its full name, and should stick to it.

    Andrea, there is not change. Just a shorter form to the name Czech Republic. The French Republic also uses a shorter form, France (in Spanish or Italian “Francia”).

    If Czechia is ugly (your words), then Czech Republic (same sound plus -ia like Australia or California) is also ugly and CZECHoslovakIA would be super ugly (it was CZECHIA with inserted “o-slovak”).
