Bosnia is an informal use for the whole country. The two regions have formed a geopolitical entity since medieval times, and the name "Bosnia" commonly occurs in historical and geopolitical senses as generally referring to both regions. The official use of the name including both regions started only in the late period of Ottoman-rule.
