Origin and meaning of name Holland

US English
Etymology src :
  • After Holland, where it originally came from. From Old Dutch holt lant (“wood land”).
Etymology src :
  • From Old Dutch holt lant (“wood land”). A popular but false etymology holds that it is derived from hol land (“hollow land”), inspired by the low-lying geography of both the Dutch and the English region (Holland, Lincolnshire); the latter's name is derived from Old English hoh land (“spur land”).
Pronunciation src :
  • (Received Pronunciation) IPA(key): /ˈhɒlənd/
  • (General American) enPR: hŏlʹənd, IPA(key): /ˈhɑlənd/

Proper noun (Usage notes) src :

  • Hollands
  • Noord-Holland
  • Zuid-Holland
Proper noun (Usage notes) src :
  • People in the Netherlands generally do not call their country Holland, especially not if they live outside the two provinces of that name. It can be seen as reinforcing Hollandic political and/or cultural dominance, which might be sensitive to some, although unlikely to cause serious offence. However, the term is more widely used to mean "Netherlands" in international contexts, such as in international shipping, and it is also widespread in sports.

  • holländisch
  • Holländisch
  • Holland ist offen
Proper noun (Usage notes) src :
  • In formal contexts, Holland referring to the whole country is now relatively rare.
  • In common speech, Holland continues to be the normal word. The main reason is that the synonym Niederlande is quite long and, moreover, requires a definite article (as in English). Compare:Wir fahren nach Holland. (three syllables)
  • Wir fahren in die Niederlande. (six syllables)

  • hollandsk, nederlandsk
