Should be renamed as the Baltics, not Baltic States to avoid confusion :)

Friends, Baltics, Baltic States or Baltic Countries means the same. Estonians, Latvians and Lithuanians will never be confused by any of that names. Trying to tell someone out of our countries you are coming from Baltics will make confusion. Most of the people around the World knows as a part of Baltic States much more less as Baltic Countries and just some as Baltics. That is coming historically from the news everyone heard or read.

In Latvian we use Baltijas Valstis as Lithuanians Baltijos valstybės witch both means Baltic Countries (or States). We never use Baltija alone. I have never heard Estonians telling simple Balti instead of Baltimaad also.

Just free of them? This is strange classification anyway...

Why not just EU?

The Baltics or Baltic Countries makes more sense to me as another Estonian as well. Baltic States is just odd.

Why we need that weird separation at all? Why not just Europe?
