Holland or The Netherlands?

Post by Fletch on Fri Sep 10, 2010 1:51 pm

Which would a Dutchman prefer us Anglo-Saxons (and our colonial cousins across the Atlantic) to call your country?

Holland.

The "nether" in Netherlands implies inferiority.

You're a fount of knowledge Mulletman, but I'll wait for one of our Dutch brothers to weigh in. After all, Holland is only a region in the Netherlands... so lets see.

Tyler, Yari, Demon, Mike's Gym, The Fightclub gang.... what say you guys?

doesnt matter.
Only the spelling in the undertitle of the Dutch forum is wrong.
Nederlandse forum = Nederlands forum.

Sasori - so The Netherlands is best to use in English? That is the more respectful one?

Thanks man - I will try to correct everyone I hear that says Holland Very Happy

ps- funny though, guilloREEM has "Holland" as his location haha.

Could you write a good sentence for me, along the lines of "Dutch forum for fans and fighters" (I think that's what I had translated on google), and I will put it into the forum description.

Any other mistake - in the welcome thread, or elsewhere, let me know man.

Haha, why do you guys say it's a shithole? It's one of the best places to live as long as we don't get flooded (knock on wood).

Holland btw is a synonym for The Netherlands, wich should actually be Netherland as we call it Nederland. It's not just the provinces north and southholland.

We the dutch prefer Holland as it's the name we use ourselves next to Nederland. I think it's primarily because the netherlands is an english name for something dutch.

It's the same as Deutschland being Germany, Belgiƫ being Belgium or ƶsterreich being Austria.

Dude we don't sing "hup north and southholland hup" or "hup the netherlands hup" (when our national footbal (soccer) team plays)!

Can't believe we dutchies can't even agree on this Wink. Read my previous post to get the real awnser.

Ach ja, uiteindelijk is het maar net wat je zelf liever zegt of hoort toch.

Wat is het verschil met Tilburg Noord en de rest trouwens? Ben wel benieuwd.

Mensen praten vaak slecht over Tilburg Noord, alsof het een achterstandswijk is. Ik laat juist altijd zien dat ik er vandaan kom. Het is een vooroordeel.
