The European Union calls itself "Europe", despite the fact that the name also refers to a continent.
The United States of America call themselves "America", despite the fact that the name also applies to two whole continents.
We could simply call ourselves "the Commonwealth" and let people suffer mild confusion when someone actually refers to the current organisation.
