Map of Eswatini's Territorial claims in South Africa[edit]

Does anyone know of a map that shows Eswatini's territorial dispute with South Africa? It would useful for the article to include those claimed areas on the map as we do for disputed areas in the articles of other countries like Venezuela and India.XavierGreen (talk)

"still commonly known in English as Swaziland"[edit]

This line is in the introduction, but if this was true, wouldn't the article name be "Swaziland" as per WP:COMMONNAME? Does the line need to be rewritten? --Spekkios (talk) 01:28, 2 October 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Might as well call it Swaziland, in English. The real name of a big European country is Italia, but English speakers call it Italy.

Some research needed as to how far ranging the change is. Did the decree say that the new name is preferred in all languages? In any case, the new name means ‘land of the Swazis’, so if there are politics around this, they should be discussed in the article. (talk) 16:05, 26 November 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I think this is just poorly phrased. I don't see it as necessarily meaning that Swaziland is the most commonly used term, just that it is not a rare usage. However, I'm not sure what the actual pattern of usage is, so I can't say for certain that it is not. --Khajidha (talk) 04:19, 27 November 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I've changed "commonly" to "often" to avoid implying that we're referring to common usage. Kahastok talk 10:09, 27 November 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]


Do I remember correctly that the "new" name has the same meaning as the former English one, i e "Land of the Swazi"?--Oudeístalk 05:12, 3 December 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Proper Capitalisation of Name (eSwatini)[edit]

If I am not mistaken, Swaziland changed its name to "eSwatini", not "Eswatini"... Should Wikipedia not respect the proper capitalisation of the name? NipponGinko (talk) 20:25, 26 March 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Ample past discussions have addressed this issue, see above. JJLiu112 (talk) 08:33, 21 April 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
