Cambodia was known as “Cambodge” in the old days by the French.

In Vietnam ,we called it “Cam Bôt” then.

When Cambodia became Kampuchia, Vienamese refer to it as “Kam Pu Chia” (3 words).

Since the middle of XIX century, Vietnam, Laos, and Cambodia were under French Colonialist, Cambodia as former French name (before 1975) is “Cambodge” so Vietnamese pronounced “Cam bốt” as the same in that period, then the Democratic Kampuchea (or Democratic Cambodia) is the official name of Cambodia between 1975 and 1979, ruled by the Khmer Rouge and Vietnamese also pronounced “Cam pu chia” (or short form “Cam or K”) until now.

Ex: I have gone to Cambodia as a soldier - Tôi đã đi bộ đội bên “Cam pu chia” (or “Cam” or “K”)
