    Dardania was like Kosovo and Fyrom together, with Skopje being one of its main cities so it's not totally invalid. As for Paeonia, greeks couldn't and wouldn't object it, but the point is as you said that it's not a brand strong enough to differentiate them from those they want to distance themselves from.

    The four potential names officially put forward by the Macedonian government

    * Republic of North Macedonia
    * Republic of Upper Macedonia
    * Republic of Vardar Macedonia
    * Republic of Macedonia (Skopje)

    No doubt the Greeks will reject all four because MACEDONIA IS GREECE!!!!! :hitler:

    Vardar sounds angry and filthy and so Balkan. I’d take it.

    Sorry if I'm the only person who remotely cares about this, but I'm kind of obsessed by murky Balkan politics. This shit makes Trump look professional. :D

    North Macedonia wins. Although it still needs to be ratified by the Greek and Macedonian governments and pass a referendum in Macedonia.

    Will Northern Macedonia be the sole Macedonia?

    I'm highly sceptical that it'll get through the Greek government given the minority coalition leader has flatly refused to countenance any name with the word Macedonia in it, and this deal is likely to be hugely unpopular with older Greek people.

    Be great if it happens though.

    Let’s face it most of us will still be calling it Macedonia regardless.

    Exactly

    It's like Bucks Fizz/The Fizz all over again, except less globally significant.
