Interesting Fact:

In 1932 Czech writer and journalist Ivan Olbracht used the title Land Without A Name for a book about the province of Ruthenia (now part of Ukraine) that had been incorporated into the newly created Czechoslovak state. A remote territory of woodcutters and farmers, Ruthenia lacked a name, in Olbracht's view, because it was subject to so many competing nationalist claims.
