Borrowed from සිංහල ශ්‍රී ලංකාව (śrī laṁkāwa), from සංස්කෘත श्री लङ्का (śrī laṅkā, literally holy Lanka).


  • IPA(key): /ʃɹiˈlɑːŋkə/, /sɹiˈlɑːŋkə/, /sɹiˈlæŋkə/[1][2]
  • (file)

It should be noted that the Sanskrit honorific that the "Sri" comes from (श्री, ISO: Śrī) is pronounced [ɕriː], and while this pronunciation is preserved in Sinhalese, the closest English phoneme that best fits [ɕ] is /ʃ/, resulting in the approximation /ʃɹ/. /sɹ/ in English results from ignoring or dropping the diacritic on ⟨s⟩ in the romanization ⟨śrī⟩. In Sinhalese, [sriː] may occur as an acceptable variant pronunciation only in quick, uneducated speech, because [ɕ] is an uncommon phoneme in Sinhalese and is replaced with [s] in certain dialects.

Both stresses on the first and second syllables of "Lanka" are accepted, but the latter is closer to its native pronunciation.

“Sri Lanka” has been the official name since 1972; prior to that it was Ceylon.

Place names are a source of controversy in Sri Lankan politics, in connection with the Sri Lankan Civil War, and some find “Sri Lanka” to be too Sinhalese. A Tamil name is Eelam, and some Tamil political parties retain “Ceylon” in their name, such as the All Ceylon Tamil Congress and the Ceylon Workers' Congress.
