Top definition
the name foreigners use to describe a country or city

in contrast to endonym -- the name the natives use
exonym example...IRELAND (pronounced IRE-LAND) an appropriate EXONYM as they are always so bloody angry -- and ironically somebody will probably be angry that it has been pointed out to them

endonym example...ERIE (pronounced ERROR) an appropriate ENDONYM to acknowledge their mistake in leaving the United Kingdom
