I think (20-30% chance right) that is what it's original name is; I have very little knowledge about the Middle East and Mediterranean Sea Area because I studied that in October 2007, or maybe she meant it like that
"Real Men Wear Pink" thing.

I didn't come to Psypoke Forums during summer vacation to get a lesson in my nearly failed and worst subject, but at least in 2009-2010, 9th graders in Ohio learn world history and Ohio State will destroy Michigan again in Football and Basketball, along with any other sport where there is a field/court/arena/rink/etc., because according to a book I read, the only reason Ohio and Michigan havent had a mini Civil War is because of the sports, where OSU has atomic bombs and Michigan has their fists and feet.

I think you're 100% right. Byzantium was the original settlement, which became Constantinople, named after the Roman Emperor Constantine. Finally, it changed its name to Istanbul in 1930 after Turkey became a new state.
