Why is Denmark called Denmark?
Most danes believe that it means Dan's Field, Den being derived from Dan, the name of an early king; and mark meaning a field in Danish. However there are a plethora of theories (see the Sources and relate links section, below).

Denmark is to the north of Germany. Denmark is considered to be one of the four Nordic countries of Europe (the others being Norway, Sweden and Iceland). It is the souther…nmost of these, lying southwest of Sweden, and south of Norway (Iceland is far off in the North Atlantic). It is bordered to the south by Germany. The Baltic Sea lies to the east of Denmark and the North Sea lies to the west. The country consists of a large peninsula, Jutland (aka Jylland), and many islands; the largest are Zealand (aka SjÃ¦lland), Funen (aka Fyn), Vendsyssel-Thy (although this is sometimes lumped with Jutland), Lolland, Falster, and Bornholm. A hundred or so minor islands making up the "Danish Archipelago" lie around Jutland in the North Sea and Baltic Sea and are part of Denmark. Greenland could also be considered part of Denmark although it is now an autonomous country with Denmark only exercising control in foreign relations. Greenland, of course, is located between the Arctic and Atlantic Oceans east of the Canadian Arctic Archipelago of North America and is categorized as part of North America. DENMARK is a country in Northern Europe.

A Dane or in Danish 'dansker'
They aren't. People from Denmark are called Danes, their language is Danish, and when you refer to culture from Denmark it is called Danish culture. In the Danish language: Da…nish = Dansk, and Danes = Danskere. If you are confused about the relation between danish the pastry, and Danish the ethnicity, the answer is that Danish settlers to America made it popular in the States, which is why Americans call that sort of pastry, "danish". A more etymological (sp?) reason for why Danish are called Danish in English, is because that's what the Germans call "danskere", too. English and German aren't all that foreign to each other, after all.
