Etymology

The nation was initially named as the Federated States of Snagov at the time of its establishment on 18 June 2020, however, it was renamed to its current form of the Snagovian Federal Republic on 3 October 2020[3].

Snagov comes from the lake that most of the Oblasts are close to, Tâncăbești Oblast, Izvorani Oblast, and the South Siliștea Oblast even having a coast on said lake. It may also come from the Snagov commune in Romania. The "Federal Republic" part comes from the fact that the country is, indeed, a Federal Republic. Gheorghe Ștefan Marius and Chilău David Robert were born and currently live in Snagov, Romania, and so they deemed that it would be appropriate and fair to use a local name for their nation.
