This is what happened with the revision of Chinese names to reflect the

still remains Seattle (rather than Sealth), Roma remains Rome, and doubtless

many others will never change.

I was curious who were the powers that were who changed Khadaffi to Qadaffi

and Mao Tse Tun to whatever they changed it to. I tried to popularize it to

Kadaffy and Mousey Tongue and Sadamn Who'sinane but to no avail.
