Yes, the United States of America were, in aggregate but still in plural, first given international recognition as independent states by the Treaty of Paris in 1783. The first nation to grant recognition to the "United States of America in Congress" was Morocco in 1786. It was not until after the ratification of the US Constitution in 1789 that the US began to gain international recognition as a single independent country. The Treaty of London of 1794 (also known as the Jay Treaty) was a significant milestone in that process.

North and South America were named after the explorer Amerigo Vespucci. However, America has come to mean the United States of America. So America is not in the US; it is the US. People call it the USA,US, United States of America, United States or just America
