Countries have different names in different languages
#1
Countries have different names in different languages
Countries have different names in different languages.

Now some say that it would be a point of Honour and Politeness to call all  countries be the names that   they use themselves.

What do you think about it?

As an example:
May we say Hungary, or must we say Magyarország, the way the country calls itself?
