(CNN)– It’s the one fact about Mexico that you most likely didn’t understand. The nation ‘s name is not really Mexico, a minimum of not formally. After gaining self-reliance from Spain in 1821, Mexico formally came to be the “Mexican United States.”. The American independence motion had actually motivated Mexican innovators of that period and since Mexico, in fact, additionally was an area made up of states, the name stuck and came to be official in 1824. But the reality is the official name is used just by Mexican authorities who handle diplomatic protocol and official files relating to worldwide relations. For the rest of Mexicans– and the globe — the nation is merely referred to as Mexico. That’s why outgoing Mexican President Felipe Calderon on Thursday sent out to the Mexican Congress a piece of legislation to alter the nation ‘s name formally to merely Mexico.
