There have been numerous name changes of countries within the Commonwealth, the member states that have ceased to be part of the British Commonwealth are:

* Irish Free State (Ireland) - left in 1949 * Malaya - joined Malaysia in 1963 * Newfoundland - joined Canada in 1949 * Tanganyika - merged to become Tanzania in 1964 * Zimbabwe - left in 2003

All of these states competed in the commonwealth games prior to their dispersement, Zanzibar who merged with Tanganika also ceased to be a commonwealth member in 1964 however they have never competed in the commonwealth games.

In addition Fiji are currently suspended from the British Commonwealth following their coup in 2006, they are currently down to compete in the 2010 games however this may change.
