    Romanians are right. Personally I use the term tsigani in Greek. I believe that we should have the right to not accept an ethnonym which some group of people uses.

    Some assume that 'Rom', Lom and Dom people are related. There are some Dom (Domba) people in India too, so maybe the original form of their ethnonym was something like that.

    Romania (Ρωμανία) was one of the possible names for Greece too, along with Grecia (Γραικία) and Hellas. Hellas was more popular among intellectuals who where then influenced by classicism.
    I don't know if in a parallel universe we are a Romania too.

    that's a stereotype like all arabs are terrorists, all afghans are talibans or Osama ben Laden and such..
    the first thing that come into my mind when I think about Romania is a very beautiful and mysterious country.. amazing people, wonderful landscapes and nature, awesome language, delicious cuisine, great history

    Spoiler!

This whole thing is like calling all Americans ''niggers'', because a minority of their citizens are black. It is the same exact situation with Gypsies being a mere minority in Romanian and in the large Romanian diaspora. So stop it retards!
    Those who call you Gypsies are retarded or retard troll and they enjoy trolling others.

    There are a LOT of people who think gypsies simply are romanians and romanians simply are gypsies. Poles, for example. They don't make the difference because many of them have never seen a Romanian or if they have seen one, they didn't realise that he was Romanian. You can't say that a whole nation is retarded. No, the problem runs much deeper. And honestly, I prefer all of the gypsies out of my country and not having to deal with them even with the price of being considered a gypsy.
