Before 1935, it was called Veliki Bečkerek in Serbian, or Nagybecskerek in Hungarian during Austro-Hungarian rule. There is no consensus how the city should be called. Some people find Petrovgrad to be too nationalistic and monarchistic, some don't like Bečkerek because it's "too Hungarian". Some people don't like name Zrenjanin because it's communist, and the person had nothing with the city (he was from the Vršac area, some 100 km away).
It was called Veliki Bečkerek, while in today Romanian Banat, there was and still is a Small Becicherec, Mali Bečkerek in Serbian. It retained the name although there is no other town with the same name, not even in Serbian Banat.

For example, in Romania, the city Oradea, previously when Transylvania was part of Hungary was called Great Oradea, Nagyvárad in Hungarian, still used as official name in Hungarian. The same with the city Salonta, Nagyszalonta in Hunarian, also in the same region.

I know that, it's near Timisoara and there are few Serbs living there. There was also another name, used by Catalans who were settled in Banat after Austria conquered it from Ottomans in early 18th century: New Barcelona.

Also there is a neighbourhood in Zrenjanin officialy called "Mala Amerika" ("Little America"). You can find it if you type in Google Maps.

Strange . I have just realized, that Slovak exonyms for Romanian cities are derived from Hungarian language. Oradea is Veľký Varadin (Great Varadin), Cluj-Napoca is Koložvár and Timisoara is Temešvár.

Sure. Regarding to slavic languages, Vienna is Wiedeń in Polish, Vídeň in Czech, Viedeň in Slovak and Vena in Russian. However it is Beč in Serbian/Croatian surely derived from Hungarian Language (Bécs). But the craziest thing ever related to Vienna is Dunaj in Slovenian language

Dunaj. But I ain't talking about river, but city. Vienna in Slovenian is Dunaj.

Can't find an English link. Mam destroys his 120,000 € BMW in front of the IAA in protest that it doesn't have the comfort he expects from it.

You say Dunaj hmm interesting i think its the same in Czech as well.

Well if you take into consideration that the river Danube flows through Vienna, and fact that we were all under the same empire for a quite some time, the result is logical. The language is "a live thing".

Well the name Dunaj for Vienna is obviously logical. But the significant difference in respect to neighbouring languages fascinate me a bit. Why have Slovenes decided to call it Dunaj instead of original Wien derivation or avarish Becs derivation possibly?
