for the U.S.A to get its own name

This petition had 308 supporters

It is time to acknowledge that the U.S.A is a nameless country that has been using the name of the continent as their own.

In the light of the embarrassment of their government and their complete lack of understanding towards what they call Latin America and other parts of the world, we ask that they acquire a name of their own and stop using our name. 

If they want to build a wall to be divided from the Latin heritage (that is also part of theirs) they could start by picking a name that doesn't come from that tradition. 

If America represents the "New World" as a world in which every culture and individual is allowed to pursue their own ways, then the nameless country of North America is far from representing that.

The nameless country of North America is not America, not geographically nor symbolically. In fact, since it does not even recognise their own heritage it is the less American of the American countries.

As a sub petition we ask that "American Football" be internationally known as Soccer. Football or Fútbol or futebol is the American football.
