After All, Why Did Turkey Change Its Name?

What is in the name, someone tell it to Turkey.

All over the world Turkey is known by its English name “Turkey”. But the citizens of Turkey never take the name of their country Turkey in common parlance. They call him Turkiye.

And now Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan wants the whole world to call him “Turkey” instead of “Turkey”. In a statement, he said that the word Turkiye refers to the civilization, culture and values ​​of Turkey.

Therefore Turkey will henceforth be known as “Türkiye” except as ‘Turkey’, ‘Turkei’, ‘Turquie’ and whatever other names it is called.
