Regarding the naming of BYZ, I have to say that my feeling concurrent closely with Romanus. I even use the name, Roman Empire when I am speaking of Byzantine Empire. To be truthful, I never use the word Byzantium, not unless talking about the city that had existed before it became Constantinople. I mean, I have always change the name of Byzantium to Roman Empire or, in past, Byzantine Empire. I am sorry but I don't like it when the people use the word Byzantium when refering to the country of Roman/Byzantine Empire. I mean, people of Byzantine Empire considered themselves to be Romans, and their empire as Roman Empire. So, why not use the name they called themselves? Would that mean, we should use the word Yankees instead of American (or even United Stateian)? Or the Yankeeland instead of United States of America? Or even the empire of Washington? Do you see the points I am trying to say? Yes, I do use the name of Byzantine, when I am trying to make clear of which period of Roman Empire but always afterward, used Roman Empire. Sighing, it seems that I still talking in circle, so let make it clear. I considered Roman Empire to be most correct but Byzantine Empire is acceptable where Byzantium, no way. That is how I feel.
