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 interesting, but I thought it was Zhong Guo, Middle Kingdom.

That's a historical period reference not the name.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 47399138

No that's the name of the country.

You aren't Chinese are you? Iranian?
 Quoting: The Deplorable Truth

It's not the name of the nation. It's a descriptive for a time period of the nation.
