* During the Turkish War of Independence, three provinces, Maraş, Urfa and Antep, saw some of the heaviest fighting. After independence in 1923, these provinces had honorary titles added to their official names, becoming Kahramanmaraş (Maraş the Heroic), Şanlıurfa (Urfa the Glorious) and Gaziantep (Antep the Veteran[[note]]This title should not be considered DamnedByFaintPraise in comparison with the others. Although the direct translation for "Gazi" is "Veteran", it generally refers to someone heavily injured in the line of duty, similar to a Purple Heart recipient, and therefore denotes significant respect in the Turkish culture[[/note]]). Unlike most examples in PleaseSelectNewCityName, the shorter and longer versions are both acceptable, though the longer versions are considered more formal.
