Explanation:
This is the "official" name of the country we call Mexico. It is also the reason why you will learn to abreviate United States of America as EEUU in Spanish. EU would be Mexico, EEUU "America."

Explanation:
Sorry garabato but this is the correct title. I should know - I had to go through school there. Just like it's the United States of America NOT just America. (America what - south? central? north? which of 22 countries?) DON'T GET ME STARTED! But I digress.....to the poor person that asked the question in the first place .......it is the proud Mexican United States. Good luck to you!

United States of Mexico


Explanation:
I got so worked up I forgot to tell you that this is also proper. In fact, I would use this although the literal translation would be Mexican United States. It's a syntax thing and this not only "sounds" better but I believe is the original meaning. Anyway - it's what I would definately use myself. The only references I can offer are years of growing up in and going to school in Mexico. Good luck!
