Chişinău (Chisinau) is the name in Romanian (locally also known as Moldavian), spelt in the Latin script. There was also the same name in so called Moldavian language, which was spelt in the Cyrillic script and is now abandoned: Кишинэу.  Note that this was not the Russian name of the city, which albeit also Cyrillic was spelled was a bit different: Кишинёв.
