01 Bangkok Chang New Full Name Krung Thep Maha Nakhon

So did Bangkok just change its name? Yes! Bangkok has now changed its name to "Krung Thep Maha Nakhon". Bangkok which is one of the most famous tourist destinations in the world now has an official, formal name. Are you surprised by this name change in Bangkok? I know I am.

Bangkok Changed Its Name To "Krung Thep Maha Nakhon"

Though the formal "Krung Thep Maha Nakhon" will be used officially, you can still address it as "Bangkok" which is the more recognisable common name. Phew! Apparently, the name change has been approved in principle by the Thailand cabinet and the government officials are in the final process of vetting it. So it is confirmed!

01 Bangkok Chang New Full Name Krung Thep Maha Nakhon

Some of you might argue that Bangkok's new name "Krung Thep Maha Nakhon" or "Krung Thep" (the shorter version) will not be easy to remember and pronounce which is true to a certain extent right? If you are not a Thais, the new name change will not roll off the tongue. But then again you will be shell-shocked to learn that Bangkok's new official ceremonial name is even longer and you might not even be able to remember half of it. Are you ready? *drumroll*

Bangkok's New Full Name Translation and Meaning

“City of angels, the great city of immortals, magnificent city of the nine gems, the seat of the king, city of royal palaces, home of gods incarnate, erected by Vishvakarman at Indra’s behest.”

Honestly speaking, I am really impressed by Bangkok's new full name and pronunciation. It is not only visibly longer but its translation literally blows my mind. No disrespect, but I am truly flabbergasted to see words like "angels", "immortals", "nine gems" and "gods incarnate" which make the name super cool and it feels like Bangkok is a place for higher up beings. I can't help but feel that Marvel should make a superhero or superheroes movie in Bangkok right now!


Why Did Bangkok Change Its Name?

According to Thai PBS World, the "old" Bangkok name has been used the November 2001 and it was derived from an old area which is called Bangkok Yak and Bangkok Noi. The announcement of the official name change of Bangkok was made by Thailand's Office of Royal Society. So why did Thailand change Bangkok to its new name "Krung Thep Maha Nakhon"? I have yet to find out the real, official reason. If you know the answer please update us by leaving your comments.

P.S.: I kind of like this new name change of Bangkok to "Krung Thep Maha Nakhon". It has a greater sense of identity and it is more enigmatic. What say you?
