In other languages is called in other ways such as Grecia in Italian and Greece in English, so why this country is called Ellada in Greek? But.. where does this name comes from? The ancient name of the country is Hellas or Ellada and its official name is the Hellenic Republic.
In English, however, the country is usually called Greece, which comes from Latin Graecia (as used by the Romans) and literally means ‘the land of the Greeks’
