Why was the name Brussels given to the capital of Belgium?
The name Brussels is the English name for the Belgian capital. In Brussels, two languages are spoken, Dutch and French. The French name is Bruxelles but you really want to take a look at the city's original name: Brussel, which is the Dutch name. Brussel is an evolution of the word "Broekzele", the old name of the city. You can still notice the "kz" combination in the French name. The word Broekzele is a combination of Broek, which means "marsh", and "zele" which means village. So the literal translation of Brussels is "Village in the marsh". When Brussels was founded more then a 1000 years ago, it was indeed in a place full of marsh, one of the last marsh places to be covered up is now known as the Heysel where you can find the Atomium.

In Roman times, the region that is now Belgium housed a number of Gallic tribes. The most important would be the Eburones, but the most famous tribe is the Belgae. Julius Caesar put it this way in his "About the Gallic wars": "Omnii Galii, Belgae fortissimi sunt" (of all the Gallic tribes, the Belga…e are the strongest/bravest). When Belgium was constructed in 1830 (by the British), the reference to the Gallic tribe was used, hence the name BelgiÃ«/Belgique. 'Belgica' has always been the latin name for the Low Countries, after the devision of the low Countries you had Belgica Foederata (the Netherlands) and Belgica Regia the Southern-Netherlands, now known as Belgium. In 1790 the Brabantine rebellion against the Austrians created a confederation: the United Belgian States, from the French Les Etats Unis Belgiques (at that time Belgique was still the adjective). Since then the Belgium was known as Belgium. In 1830 the new state needed a name, Southern-Netherlands were excluded because of the link with the United Kingdom of the Netherlands, (which could also have been named the United Kingdom of the Two Belgiums). They looked back and remembered the nickname 'La Belgique' (from Etats Unis Belgiques) and took that as name. Belgium is just the lod name for Netherlands, or low Countries. ( Full Answer )

The capital of Belgium of course is Brussels. To be more precise, it is actually called "Brussel" in its Flemish name, which is its rightful name.. Note that the French derivative name "Bruxelles" reflects its origin : Bruxelles was derived from the Dutch name "Broekzele". "Broek" in Dutch means, l…oosely, "swamp". This is because the oldest part of Brussel originally was built on a swamp. ( Full Answer )
