Siam is an exonym* that was formerly used as the name of Thailand, especially Central, Eastern, Western, and Southern Thailand.
This Nation has a long history which is far too long to go into detail here. The Thai people, who originally lived in southwestern China, migrated into mainland Southeast Asia over a period of many centuries. The oldest known mention of their existence in the region by the exonym Siamese is in a 12th-century inscription at the Khmer temple complex of Angkor Wat in Cambodia. The inscription refers to syam, or "dark brown", people. "Siam" may have originated from the Sanskrit śyāma "dark", referring to the relative skin color of its native people. Chinese: 暹羅; pinyin: Xiānluó was the name for the northern kingdom, but to the Thai themselves, the name of the country has always been Mueang Thai.
The country's designation as Siam by Westerners likely came from the Portuguese, the first Europeans to give a coherent account of the country. By the end of the 19th century, Siam had become so enshrined in geographical nomenclature that it was believed that by this name and no other would it continue to be known and styled.
On July 20th, 1948, the Siamese constituent assembly voted to change the name of Siam to Thailand, which came into effect the following year. The name Mueang Thai or Thailand, means ‘land of the free’.
*Exonym: a name used by foreigners for a place or a people or a social group that the group itself doesn't use.
