According to many European old maps, the river is named as Menam or Mae Nam, the Thai word for river (Me or Mae is “Mother”, Nam is “Water”). The name Chao Phraya is a Thai feudal title, which can be translated as “Grand Duke”. In the English-language media in Thailand the name is often translated as River of Kings.Current research found that the term Chao Phraya did not appear in any historical sources until later in the Rattanakosin era. This supports the argument that the river was originally known to the locals as Menam as recorded in Thai and European sources before 19th Century.
