Guided Turkey tours inform about the name of Turkey
One thing is so clear: Turkey is not mentioned with the name of a poultry. The name of Turkey is not an invention of the bird. Come and have guided Turkey tours with us.

Italian merchant meets Turks
The migration of various Turkish tribes to Anatolia from the 11th century changed the demographic and linguistic composition of Asia Minor. Accordingly, the Italian (Venetian and Genoa) merchant who had the most intense shopping with Anatolia started to mention “Turchia” in this area since the 13th century. This use has become increasingly common.
It has passed from other Italian languages to other European languages. That’s how it got in English. So (with the capital letter T) “Turkey” is not the name of a bird in English, but “the land where the Turks live”. In other words, “Turkey” is nothing but English in “Turkey”.British and Americans say “Turkey”. French “Turquie”, Italians; “Turchia”.
Over time, the Ottoman Empire grew and expanded, covering a very wide area. More precisely, it has settled into a very large area between Europe and the Far East (China, India, etc.).So much so that in the eyes of some Europeans, the Sark (the East, the Asian) has become completely identical.
