We used to call the capitol of China “Peking.”  I’m not sure when or why, but for years has been called “Beijing.”  Yet, in a Chinese restaurant one still orders Peking duck.

We used to call the capitol of Ukraine “Kiev.”  Now, they call it Keev. At least that is what it sounds like, and I think it is now spelled Kjiv.  Do they still call it Chicken Kiev?
