As far as I know, he was called Tchaikowsky, without an s after the T, unless you wish to use the "translitterated" name from Russian..., in which case it would take an i instead of the y... :confused:

Let's say that the exact "translitteration" from Russian of Чайковский (чайка = seagull) is "Chajkovskij", nevertheless it is generally accepted the transcription of Tchaikovsky from the diplomatic official use of writing Russian names on the basis of French reading rules, and that explains why Russian "Ч" is written in the French way "tch" to be read as "ч" and not as "ch" according to translitteration rules.
"Tschaikovsky" is a German transcription so as in Italian one can write Ciakovski, those are "local", non normative transcriptions.
Luckily, none of them will change the music of Чайковский.
