The Proper Names of the United States

Now its not something that I can easily find on the internet...but I wonder if people could enlighten me. What is the FULL name of the State that you live in...for example "The Commonwealth of Virgina" rather then just "Virginia"

I'm interested to hear the answers :)

The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania

Fun/Random English fact relating to PA:
The southern most border of Pennsylvania, the Mason-Dixon line, was surveyed in the mid 1760s by English astronomer Charles Mason and English surveyor Jeremiah Dixon to settle a dispute between William Penn and Lord Baltimore.

PS. Most residents just call it "PA" (Pee-Aye)
I'm not sure any other states go by their abbreviations

Speaking of home states, where the heck is Crisco? Haven't heard from him since he went to Hawaii. Think he's still there? Maybe he decided to stay and train with BJ Penn full time.
