NominaRecensere

Hodiernum sinus nomen Thaiicum est Ao Thai (อ่าวไทย = IPA ʔàːw tʰāj) 'Thai sinus', sed in litteris antiquis Thaiice appellatur Ao Sayam (อ่าวสยาม).[9] Nomen Malayanice et Khmerice Teluk Siam et ឈូងសមុទ្រសៀម Chhoung Samut Siem proprie manet. Sinus Vietnamice Vịnh Thái Lan appellatur. Gulf of Thailand, nomen Anglicum, ab Societate Hydrographica Internationali rite appellatur.[10]

Sinus cum Magno Sinu cartographorum Graecorum, Romanorum, Arabium, Persicorum, et Europaeorum Renascentiae plerumque comparatur, antequam Portugallenses exploratores adventi paeninsulam Caudae Draconis a geographicis mundi tabulis saeculo sexto decimo amoverunt.
