Turkey wants to be called Türkiye in rebranding move
Turkey will be known as Türkiye at the United Nations from now on, after it agreed to a formal request from Ankara.
Several international bodies will be asked to make the name change as part of a rebranding campaign launched by the Turkish president late last year.
State broadcaster TRT was quick to make the change as soon as it was announced last year, explaining that among the reasons for the image rebrand was the association with the bird traditionally associated with Christmas or New Year or Thanksgiving.
It also pointed out to the Cambridge English Dictionary’s definition of one of the meanings of the word as "something that fails badly" or "a stupid or silly person".
rebrand：動詞，重塑形象。例句：We have to make some changes to rebrand our organization.（我們得做些改變來重塑我們集團的形象。）
(be) known as sth.：片語，被稱作、以某稱號或身份聞名。例句：Lo̍k-kok is known as the land of tea.（鹿谷以茶鄉著稱。）
turkey：名詞（非正式用語），非常失敗的東西，笨蛋、傻瓜。例句：You are such a turkey! （你真是個大笨蛋！）
