Romanian Government approve the changing of Roma nationals' name to 'Gypsies'

The Romanian Government have given their consent on a very volatile matter. The Executive decided on Thursday that they support the legislative initiative of MP Silviu Prigoană of the Democratic-Liberal Party to change the official name of the 'Roma' or 'Romani' people to 'Gypsies'.


An important contribution to the decision of the Government was that of the Romanian Academy. The members of this institution say that the term 'Gypsy' is etymologically correct, whilst it ensures there is no confusion between the Romanian and the Roma nationals outside country borders.


'We based our decision on the recommendations of the Romanian Academy and on the fact that this term (Gypsy) is used in the majority of the European states', said members of the Government.


Prigoană's law project also suggests that all negative implications of the term 'Gypsy' become illegal, for the protection of the public image of the Roma people. However, he underlined the importance of this law project for the image of the Romanian throughout Europe.


'Hundreds of people on this planet don't have philological or etymological knowledge and they make the innocent mistake of adding the '-ia' suffix to the end of a population's name in order to know the name of their country. Thus, Mauritania is home to the Maures (Moors), Austria to the Austrians and Bulgaria to the Bulgarians. If we were to apply the same role to the Roma people, many people might think that Romania means the land of the Roma. The Government want to prevent that, and that is why the law project has a fighting chance to be institutionalized rather soon.
