The Czech Republic's leaders are expected Thursday to pick "Czechia" as the one-word alternative name of their country to make it easier for companies, politicians and sportsmen to use on products, name tags and jerseys.So far there is no standardized one-word English name for the Czech Republic, unlike, say, France, the shortened version of the French Republic.101zech" is an adjective and cannot be used as a one-word name for the country.In some other languages, including French and German, the Czech Republic is already designated by a single name, but in Czech itself the name 'Cesko' has only made slow progress since 1993 and 'Cechy' – or Bohemia – is still commonly used to mean the whole country.
