Couldn't finish within the time limit either. Yet I kind of like it when you have to push your brain to rush and think fast - for me usually not beneficial to finding answers though. Good quiz!

Why is "Holland" not an acceptable answer for a country in Europe beginning with the letter "H"?
+11
Level 73
Jan 7, 2016
Because the country is called The Netherlands, not Holland.

There are about 1,000 angry Dutch guys who are roaming around the internet ready to argue with you! Holland is the inaccurately-called name for the Netherlands.

Level 73
Jun 20, 2020
According to the Oxford Dictionary of English, 'Holland' can be another name for the Netherlands, or a former province of the Netherlands, comprising the coastal parts of the country. It is now divided into North Holland and South Holland. I would say it's a colloquial term, not necessarily accurate.

But it's East Timor in English. The Hungarians call their country Magyarorszag, but that doesn't mean that we have to.

Nov 9, 2018
And yet we don't translate Costa Rica, Puerto Rico, El Salvador, Ecuador, San Marino, Sierra Leone, etc. Heck, "Timor" isn't English either; it's a variety of the Malay word for "east." Why not just translate it the whole way and call it "East East"?

But Germany hasn't requested that other countries also call them "Deutschland." Why is it such a big deal to call the country what it has asked to be called? We don't insist on calling Costa Rica "Rich Coast," do we?

Georgia is a actually transcontinental country, located partially in Eastern Europe and partially in Southwest Asia, but I believe most of its population and surface area is located in Asia, so I would call it an Asian country.

Traditionally, it is part of North America. The Americas have two continents, north and south. The region Central America fits into North America. Kind of like how Western Europe is part of the continent of Europe
