    Official names

    State of Rhode Island and Providence Plantations

    Commonwealth of Massachusetts

    Commonwealth of Pennsylvania

    Commonwealth of Virginia

    The only such exceptions affect only the original 13 colonies. Many were also called "Province of..." but have since dropped the words from their official names.

    The four above are ones that I have not found evidence for a change (that does not mean they did not change, only that I did not find traces of the change).

    Well, yes I can, but two others have done so already. By the way, I am from the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico. We are full-fledged citizens of the United States. . With some limitations; unfortunately, we cannot vote for the President!

    Someday your friend will have to name 51 states and their capitals. The capital of Puerto Rico is San Juan.
