Interesting, what's the difference between VMRO and IMRO?

IMRO is in English language, means Internal Macedonian Revolutionary Organization.

VMRO is in Macedonian language, means Vnatreshna Makedonska Revolucionerna Organizacija.

By the way, since we are talking about IMRO (VMRO) I would like to say that the Organisation was founded on 23rd of October 1893 in Solun (now under greece and by the greeks called Thessaloniki) from six Macedonian patriots from Aivatovo (near Solun), Kukush, Resen, Bogomila (near Veles), Smilevo (near Bitola) and Gumendja (Aegean Macedonia).


No, the name of the city has been Thessalonika ever since Cassander named the city that he built, after the name of his wife and sister of Alexander the Great. So, the Macedonians called the city Thessalonika ever since it was built. Get used to it...

The Hellenic names of the towns in Macedonia are also mentioned in the Bible. A characteristic example is Thessaloniki. This city was founded in 315 bc by the Macedonian King Kasssandros and it was named after Alexanders' half sister - Thessaloniki.

How could the Greeks change the name from Solun (as the Slavs claim) to Thessaloniki in 1912 if that was the original name?

The name Thessaloniki is even mentioned in the bible by St Paul. Why did he address his letters (epistoles) to the "People of Thessaloniki" and not the to the people of Solun?
