Country name

The official name of the United Kingdom is the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, abbreviated as Britain. In Korea, what is called Britain is derived from the Chinese characters of England, a member of the United Kingdom, and is also accepted in other Chinese character cultures. English (Chinese pronunciation Ying (pinyin: Yīng)) is a transliteration of the English word Eng-, and the word country is a paraphrase of -land. In the Chinese character culture, this name often refers to the whole of the United Kingdom, but depending on the context, it still means only England, so it has a double meaning. In Japan, it is also used as igiris (Japanese: イギリス or 英吉利), a transliteration of the Portuguese word ingles (Portuguese: inglês) meaning England.


In 1707 the Kingdom of England and Scotland were united into the Kingdom of Great Britain. The title ‘United Kingdom’, which is commonly used to refer to Britain today, is the name of the country used to refer to the Kingdom of Great Britain, but from 1707 to 1800, the official name was still ‘The Kingdom of Great Britain’. In 1801, the Kingdom of Ireland and Great Britain were united and Great Britain and Ireland
