Why was Netherland named Netherland?
'Nederland' is an archaic Dutch word for 'low country'. 'The Low Countries' is an old term for the Netherlands and part of Belgium. Low Countries might refer to how low the Netherlands actually are: more than 50% of the Netherlands are below sea-level. The name could also refer to the countries being down-river: the river Rhine and some others have their delta in the Netherlands. It could also have been a geographical term to distinguish it from certain 'upper' countries.
