The British named them “Gold Coast” they rejected it and renamed themselves “Ghana”.

The British named them “Southern Rhodesia” they rejected it and renamed themselves “Zimbabwe”.

The British named them “Northern Rhodesia” they rejected it and renamed themselves “Zambia”.

The British named them “Tanganyika” they rejected it and renamed themselves “Tanzania”.

Germans named them “Colony of South West Africa” they rejected it and renamed themselves “Namibia”

French named them “Dahomey” they rejected it and renamed themselves “Benin”.

Belgium named them “Zaire” they rejected it and renamed themselves “DRC” or “Democratic Republic of Congo”
