Message Subject China is not a Mandarin name and is not the REAL name of the country or civilization.

The name 'China' is a Sanskrit/Persian applied name for the phonetic sounds they heard when told the name of the territory.

The actual name and title of the 'Chinese' civilization and nation is Xian - with 'Qin' being another obfuscaating rendition spelling for the first 'dynasty'.

That's a historical period reference not the name.
