U Ignorance can only repeated like a parrot! What else can you do? ^^ Syam is Indian word mean brown'Black?? lol you lost your identity.. Even you own name is not in Siam word... ^^ Khmer is Khmer word not Khmera(Khemrak, Khemri all mean Khmer) which is from Pali.. lol so waht about France what france call us? Conbodgien , English Cambodia , Chinese JianBuJay...^^ you so stupid~Khmer use the word Khemra mostly in Poem. Most Cambodian scholar believe that Khemara is word from Thailand when Khmer went to learn Thervada Buddhism there and comebackwith that Pali word. ^^ so far I know this is very modern word for call our Khmer and existed in mostly Khmer religion book and Poem..
Ancient Siamese = Khom. Khom ruler spoke Sanskrit so they name themselves sanskrit Syam. It's Syambhu = son of god.
For Khmer, you tell me Khmer is Indic word we Thais call you? um... that's great.
So it's must be from Tai words Kha + Men, then we write it to Indic form so we got Khmer.
