>I’m following my own rules and NOT looking this up… so I don’t know why they changed the name from Constantinople to Istanbul, so I can’t say if it was a good or bad thing. As long as nobody’s feelings were hurt, I think both names are lovely.
I can say that I have that They Might Be Giant’s song caught in my head now.
Even old New York was once New Amsterdam
Why they changed it I can’t say
People just liked it better that way
