From Thai บางกอก (baang-gòk), believed to be derived from บาง (baang) meaning "community, village, settlement" and กอก (gòk) meaning "olive", possibly used in reference to the olive trees that grew around the area. This is the name of the capital city of Thailand primarily used in foreign languages; the city is formally called Krung Thep Maha Nakhon or Krung Thep in Thai.
