Can we really change a country's name in this times of globalization? Is it really high time for the Philippines to change name? What do you think?
If Ceylon could be changed to Sri Lanka, Mongolia to Ulan Bator, Siam to Thailand, Leningrad to St. Petersburg, Peking to Beijing, why can't the Philippines change its name?
For one, it is really very important to check on the background or what was really behind a name?
What then does it mean to be named after Felipe, to be called Felipinos (later changed to Filipinos) – to be "like Felipe," intolerant of other people and other religions?
