Description

The king of Swaziland declared on the 50th anniversary that the country should be known as eSwatini (unsure if capitalization should remain in sentence starts)

http://www.bbc.com/news/world-africa-43905628
https://www.nytimes.com/2018/04/19/world/africa/swaziland-eswatini-name-change.html

Official website: http://www.gov.sz

But the tourist board's site, that is linked from the Government site, still uses "Swaziland": http://www.thekingdomofswaziland.com

For TC to consider whether the English name should be changed. Perhaps not "common usage" just yet.
