Amharic country names have many typos

Description

In Amharic, CLDR has currently the following name for Myanmar (Burma):
<territory type="MM">ማይናማር(በርማ)</territory>

In phonetic transcription, ማይናማር is [mainamar] and በርማ is [bərma]. However, [mainamar] looks like a typo. The Amharic Wikipedia uses ምየንማ, which is [mjənma] in IPA transcription: https://am.wikipedia.org/wiki/%E1%88%9D%E1%8B%A8%E1%8A%95%E1%88%9B

If we use the same name as Wikipedia, the line in common/main/am.xml should probably be as follows:
<territory type="MM">ምየንማ (በርማ)</territory>
