When Did Challey Change It’s Name To Challah?

Can   anyone please tell  us when Challey Change It’s Name To Challah?
98% of Jews that settled in America are of  Ashkenazic  background having  Grandparents hailing from Eastern Europe While less than 2% are from Sephardic background.So why change the name to suit the 2%.
I  & many New York Jews allways called the traditional braided egg bread a Challey and so did everyone else that I grew up with in New York City Which had the largest Jewish population worldwide next to Istrael.
At what juncture was it  changed to Challah,? To pronounce it Challah sound phoney and  contrived.Just like Yom Kippur (Kippoor) from Yom Kippa..
  Even worse is when it is becoming spoken without the Chuff sound  and called a Hallah… Both sound equally stupid and absurbed.
It wasn’t before on or around  circa 1976 that Challey was sold all week.Before that only on Friday for Shabbus.I Moses Lerman Wore Many  Hats In Lifetime One Of Them Was That I Previously Owned A Bakery And Throughout The Bakery Business It Always Called “CHALLEY”
Bring back the former pronouciation “CHALLEY”and Yom Kippa.

In addition when you purchase a Store or Bakery  bought Challey there is not an once of sweetness..no sugar or honey..It tastes lousy not like in years past
