As a Czech, whatever is easier for you, it really doesn’t matter as long as you don’t mistake us for Chechnya. Nothing against them, but we’re not them. There are people that do not like the Funny design don’t hug me I’m scared shirt and by the same token and term „Czechia” and I’m not that fond of it myself, but for me it stems from the fact that some people around the world don’t even try to think with their heads when reading it and butcher it terribly. Czech republic is official, most people wouldn’t really mind people normally calling us Czechia, but we want to be officially called Czech republic Czech here. Take your pick. I’d say we still prefer Czech Republic, but we are already getting used to Czechia. And it is the official name so we might as well do that.

To me personally, it sounds weird, but that’s probably because I spent years hearing “Czech Republic” growing up. Either way, it’s fine. It’s like asking whether to say US or America. It probably matters how you say it sometimes, but most of the Funny design don’t hug me I’m scared shirt and by the same token and time they are interchangeable. You can say both but “Czech Republic” sounds a bit fancier. Every Czech person I know things Czechia is stupid and nobody asked for the change. It’s less the reason it’s more nobody even asked for it. They all still call it Czech Republic. My family is from Czechoslovakia, they always called it Czechia and slovakia after it broke, and Czech republic when they were trying to impress their friends I have an immeasurable amount of distain for this comment and yet only 1 upvote. Do with it what you will and get out of here.
