Toponymy[edit] The region's interim name Nord-Pas-de-Calais-Picardie was a hyphenated placename, created by hyphenating the merged regions' names—Nord- Pas-de-Calais
Pas-de-Calais
and Picardie—in alphabetical order.[5] On 14 March 2016, well ahead of the 1 July deadline, the Regional council decided on Hauts-de- France
France
as the region's permanent name,.[1][5] The provisional name of the region was retired on 30 September 2016, when the new name of the region, Hauts-de-France, took effect.[3] Geography[edit]
