Bye Pilipinas, hello Filipinas?

What’s in a name? For the Filipino nation, it should reflect its history and modernization, the country’s language commission said.

This, as it moved in a recent resolution to revert to the name “Filipinas” instead of the more popular “Pilipinas” and even “Philippines” as the country’s official name.

“Ipinapasiya, gaya ng ginagawang pagpapasiya ngayon, na ibalik ang gamit ng ‘Filipinas’ habang pinipigil ang paggamit ng ‘Pilipinas’ (We resolve, as it is hereby resolved, to revive the use of ‘Filipinas’ while stopping the use of ‘Pilipinas’),” the Komisyon sa Wikang Filipino (KWF) said in an April 12 resolution.

This is to “promote the country’s official and modern name which reflects its history and development as a nation,” added the document, which is making rounds in social media nearly a month before Buwan ng Wika in August.

The resolution also urges that the name “Filipinas” be gradually introduced into seals, letterheads, notes and other official documents.

Firms and institutions using the name “Pilipinas” will also be encouraged to spell it as “Filipinas” instead.

The KWF noted, however, that the change will not be mandatory, especially for entities established before the letter “F” has been introduced in the Filipino alphabet.

It added, however, that all organizations that will be created after the implementation of the resolution, should carry the name “Filipinas.”

seriously, maayo baya tuod nga naay uniformity.  surely naay basis in fact and circumstance ni nga proposal, though i can't make heads or tails of what the letter "f" has got to do with the country's "history and development as a nation".  we've always called ourselves "filipinos" anyway. 

deutschland will always be deutschland for the deutsch while most of the rest of the world know it as germany where the germans are.  so filipinas for filipinos isn't so bad.
