Variations of this were known and used as early as 1730.The first time a Kingdom of Bhutan separate from Tibet did appear on a western map, it did so under its local name as "Broukpa"."Land of Bolivar" in New Latin, in honor of Simón Bolívar, one of the leading generals in the Spanish American wars of independence.However, in every case, these seem to have been describing not modern Bhutan but the Kingdom of Tibet.The modern distinction between the two did not begin until well into George Bogle's 1774 expedition—realizing the differences between the two regions, cultures, and states, his final report to the East India Company formally proposed labeling the Druk Desi's kingdom as "Boutan" and the Panchen Lama's as "Tibet".The two seas are then the bay east and west of the island,, "country") which appeared in then Major Ziaur Rahman's 1971 declaration of independence for East Pakistan.The earliest reference to Bengal (বঙ্গ, Bôngô) has been traced in the early-9th-century Nesari plates.The exonym was next applied to Great Novgorod and then Muscovy after its conquest of that region, finally being applied to its present region in the late 16th century to describe ethnically Russian regions being conquered from Poland."Land of the Belgae", from the Roman province of Gallia Belgica ("Belgic Gaul") derived from the Latinized name of a Celtic tribe.
