For the inhabitants of modern Turkey, see Turkey. Among other things, they're not all Turks.

That is true, there are also Kurds. But Turkey received the name of the Turks. The Kurds, who live in several different states now, were sectioned and quartered compliments victorious allies, just as many other people were. H. Jonat

yes, but Turkey got its name from the (much larger group) Turks, not the Turks from Turkey, so defining 'Turks' as those 'who live in Turkey' is not accurate. Not to mention the fact that Turkic peoples live in many many states. --MichaelTinkler

Right, Turkic Turks live in Turkey H. Jonat

and in Turkmenistan, Turkestan, Uzbekistan, etc., etc.
