Believed by most, the name Thailand actually means the land of Thai (à¹à¸à¸¢) people, the biggest ethnic group in the area. However, the word, identically pronouced, "Tai" (à¹à¸) is an adjective meaning "free". Therefore, Thailand, for some, also means "The Land of The Free.

Khun Bang Klang Thao and Khun Pha Muang Most historians believe the Thais, originated from southern China in the early part of the Christian era. Firstly forming a number of city-states in the north of what is present-day Thailand, in places like Chiang Saen, Chiang Rai and Chiang Mai. Eventu…ally the Thais migrated further south to the fertile central plains, and expanded their influence over nearly the whole of the Indochina Peninsula. Contradictory as it may seem, recent archaeological discoveries around the northeast territories suggest that the world's oldest Bronze Age civilization was flourishing in Thailand some 5,000 years ago. Sukhothai was the first Thai kingdom. Founded in 1238 by two Thai governors, Khun Bang Klang Thao (Sri Inthrathit) and Khun Pha Muang who rebelled against the Khmers; giving independence to the region. Sukhothai period was the most flourishing period of Thailand. Gaining its independence in 1238 and quickly expanding its boundary of influence. Sukhothai period was considered to be a golden age of Thai culture. Hope that helps. (MORE)

Thailand old name is Siam , which, composed from many ethnic groups namely Tai , Melayu , Chinese and including many minor ethnic tribe such as Hmong (hill tribe) and Morgan (sea tribe). In 1939, after the revolution, the leader of that time want to unified the country of different ethnic race under the same name by rename the country Thai as from Tai, the major ethnic race in central. Name of country written in Thai is just à¹à¸à¸¢ (read: Thai). It follow by -land to denote that this land is belong to Thai people. The psychological feedback from Colonialism era to define the right of the belonging. Change of name had cause long controversies among ethnic race especially the Melayu on the south (they would prefer called themselves by name of religion "a Muslim" instead of Thai). Overly dominating race especially in central (Tai race) is accustom of making racist joke onto other ethnic race to made the matter worse. There are action to revert back the name to Siam, however, the public at large disagree since the name Thailand had been used for quite an era. (MORE)

So, it is likely that Girl Guides in Chile and Thailand do not sell cookies. Any cookies sold in those countries are probably sold by Girl Scouts and Girl Guides from other countries, so they would be called "Girl Scout Cookies" if sold by members of USA Girl Scouts Overseas.
