3 The name Vit Nam (Vietnamese pronunciation: [viə̀t naːm]) is a variation of "Nam Vit" (Chinese: ; pinyin: Nányuè; literally "Southern Vit"), a name that can be traced back to the Trieu dynasty of the 2nd century BC. The word Vit originated as a shortened form of Bách Vit (Chinese: ; pinyin: Bǎiyuè), a word applied to a group of peoples then living in southern China and Vietnam. The form "Vietnam" ( ) is first recorded in the 16th-century oracular poem Sm Trng Trình. The name has also been found on 12 steles carved in the 16th and 17th centuries, including one at Bao Lam Pagoda in Haiphong that dates to Between 1804 and 1813, the name was used officially by Emperor Gia Long. It was revived in the early 20th century by Phan Boi Chau's History of the Loss of Vietnam, and later by the Vietnamese Nationalist Party. The country was usually called Annam until 1945, when both the imperial government in Hu and the Viet Minh government in Hanoi adopted Vit Nam. Since the use of Chinese characters was discontinued in 1918, the alphabetic spelling of Vietnam is official.
