Financial Times suggests: Macedonia to be called 'Paionia'

 At a time when Skopje and Athens have been trying for years to find a mutually acceptable solution to the issue of Macedonia's name, an interesting proposal from the Financial Times comes. 

"Due to the importance of stability in the Balkans, I suggest that the new name to be" Paionia". "Residents should be very proud of this name, as in contrast to Macedonia, the Paionos never recognized loyalty to the Great King of Persia in the 5th century BC," writes author Malcolm Spenser of Manchester University.

This name could also be acceptable to Albanians, as historiography states that the Paionas were a group of Illyrian tribes living in the upper valley of Vardar and its branches. They stretched among Dardans, Penesters and Dasaras. After the Roman rule, Paionia split between the autonomous provinces created by the invaders and ceased to exist as a kingdom on its own.

The new proposal may pose a problem: While Greece does not accept Macedonia by this name because it is called its former province, can another neighbor, Albania, accept a name by which it is called a part of Illyrian territory?/Oculus News
