Do you call it Burma or Myanmar?

Burma seems to be widely used in Norway.

Myanmar, because that's it's name.

Calling it Burma is like calling Zimbabwe Rhodesia.

Burma, the regime that changed the name to Myanmar is illegitimate and thus so is the name change.

The first time I ever heard of the country was when some girl in my school just refuged from there and introduced her country as Myanmar, so that's how I knew of it

Mien (sounds like mi-an) is what we call the people from Myanmar

It really makes me wonder if this 'ZOG' internet meme is really the British Empire in real life.

Burma. People seem to have an idea on what it is, Myanmar means nothing to people and they wouldn't have a clue what I was talking about.

Burma, even their own nationals don't like the Myanmar name, it was just dictators hurr durring, much like how Congo became Zaire and then changed back to Congo when that regime was overthrown by the next group of despots.

90% of us doesn't get it a political connotation of term of "Myanmar". but who cares except for ex-colonial overlord?

Burma

It's funny how they acknowledges their flag change, but not name change.
It's like calling Iran Persia or Thailand Siam, or Georgia Gruzia/Grusia/Grusiya, they too wanted to change their name internationally.

I use Burma. That regime only has ~10 years left in it anyway and they'll change all the names back.
