What European country changed its English-language name in 2016?

Answer:

The Czech Republic

In an effort to simplify its name for English speakers, the Czech Republic registered “Czechia” as the new alternative name for the country in 2016. Despite the fact that the Czech Republic still serves as the formal name for the country, the use of Czechia is on the rise in both official and colloquial usage. The CIA refers to the country as Czechia in their World Factbook, and Google hits for the name rose from 460,000 in 2016 to 12.5 million today.
