Why Is There Such Thing As Ethio-Somalis When There Aren't Ethio-Afars, Ethio-Amhara Or Ethio-Oromos, Ethio-Tigreys etc?

Why is it that in Ethiopia the Somali regional State is the Only one out of all Ethnic based Regional States Authorities that have the affix 'Ethiopian' to its peoples ethnicity name and its official name?
I mean why "Dawlad Dagmeedka Somaalida Itoobiya" (Somali-Ethiopian Regional Authority) and not simply DAWLAD DAGMEEDKA SOOMAALIDA (Somali Regional Authority)

The Afar Peoples State is simply called the Afar Regional state (though the ethnic Afars are natives and have territories that spread over in 3 different countries).
The Tigrey are spread over 2 countries and yet the Tigrey regional state authority is not called Ethio-Tigreys Regional State. As are the Oromo (natives in Ethiopia as well as Kenya) but you will never hear such thing as Oromo-Ethiopians or Oromo-Ethiopian regional State.


I hope you understood my question.


P.s Please note that the Somalis are NOT the only ethnic group who are natives and reside in more than one country!

Because somalis have fiercely opposed Ethiopianisn and Ethiopia nationalistic agenda. And it was because the Somali republic interfered allot from.1960 to 1988 in the politics of somali galbeed socially politically. For decades Ethiopia had problem with kilil 5 region the successive amhara kings menelik and selassie. To transform Somalis into.Ethiopian was a difficult task.
It's to point out The region is Ethiopia remember we invaded this land in 1977 held it for 9 months. But since meles zenawi he Introduced federalism ethnic federalism we can live with that for now. Somali is very large ethnic.group.they live in djibouti Ethiopia Somalia Kenya Somaliland and socotra.

The Afar region is NOT called Ethio-Afar region to point out that it is in Ethiopia. Neither is the Tigrey people's region is called Ethio-Tigrey to point out that it is in Ethiopia same goes for the Oromo and all the other ethnic groups regions ONLY the Somali region and people have affixed the word 'Ethiopian' in its name.

The Afar in Ethiopia don't called them selves Ethiopian-Afar.
The Tigrey in Ethiopia Don't call them selves Ethiopian-Tigrey.
The Oromo in Ethiopia Don't called them selves Ethiopian-Oromo.
And same goes for all other ethnic groups. NONE have affix 'Ethiopian-' to emphasise the Ethiopiannness. Except the Somalis.
WHY IS THAT????
