Isle of Man is also known as Mann, with two n's, but I'll cut some slack and Man will work now.

I think you should put a dot or something next to Man-Guernsey-Jersey, and allow 'Faroe' for 'Faroe islands' Good quiz!

Those three are all further away. "Holland" will work now.

Because, as you head south from England, you reach the northern coast of Spain before you reach the northern end of Portugal.

I sympathise with you. Wikipedia says: Some individuals, particularly from the other parts of the Netherlands, dislike the [use of Holland to refer to the Netherlands], or even find it insulting. For this reason I never use the term. The answer is accepted to recognise that others have a different view, and it's obvious which country they mean.

The accepted English spelling is Luxembourg, but would you consider accepting the also-common endonymic spelling with no O?

Sure, added. The country is actually has three endonyms, due to its three official languages of Luxembourgish, French and German: these are L√ętzebuerg, Luxembourg and Luxemburg.
