Levi By Modern Name

Levi is perhaps the easiest modern nation to identify, it retains a legal name that matches her ancient tribe.


Switzerland's legal name is the Confederation of the Helvetti.

The last term in the name is a Hellenized form of the root word "Lvetti." That word, in turn, is simply a respelling of the Hebrew name without vowels, L-V-Y, or people of L-V-Y.

Also curious, in Hebrew, the H prefix means "the."

To play with the name, Switzerland is thus, the "Confederation of the-the Levites."
