Greece has reached a deal on the future name of its northern neighbour, which called itself Macedonia at the break-up of the former Yugoslavia....
Under the deal, the country known at the United Nations as Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia (Fyrom) will be named Severna Makedonija, or Republic of North Macedonia.
A really stupid if not a typically Balkan solution....

And, my paper world map is out of date again....

But, nice to see they're working it out, even if it seems a silly solution.

Bet you didn’t know this... the common spelling “Canada” was a transliteration of the original name: CND.
“What are we calling this again? I need to wite it on the map...eh... spell it for me”.
“We’re calling it C eh, N eh, D eh...”.
