The origin of the country's name literally means Belarus, which was the name of the region in the archaic period. It was also known as Russian Russia, which we can see on this map since 1539, and in fact, many of the country names come from ancient times and the way people called them back then. The origins of the American state were very interesting, but very simple. They are mainly named after indigenous groups, rivers or European monarchs. But here in Europe there is a little more diversity of origins. So let's find out. I'll do it from west to east, more or less, but there are timestamps in the description. If you don't want to read them all over againyour
and depending on interests, skip starting with my country, the most western in Europe, Portugal, the word Portugal comes from the Roman Celtic. The name Tiscali, a town where today's Vila Nova de Gaia is located, at the mouth of the Douro River, meant Porto as in the port, and the second word Callie has a less clear origin. Some say it relates to the ecchi color. Cities in the northwest of the Iberian Peninsula that were later called Collision Dee. Another theory is that Kali is a derivative of a Celtic word for port, but in the name of the region, in Roman times, it would be Porto Port. Which doesn't make a lot of sense, some French scientists. He also believes the name could have come from Portugal. That said, using the gates or the Celts, I think the first hypotheses about the use of khalessis make more sense.
When moving to Spain we should keep in mind that the names of countries are sometimes translated into English and other languages. So for Spain we have to look at the local name. Spain, be prepared to mispronounce all of these country names in the local languages, so we found out that Spain came from Spain, the Roman name for the area which in turn seems to derive from what the Phoenicians and Carthaginians called the Thorny Peninsula . in the later sense. These origins are uncertain for Antonio. Later, Abraham, a Renaissance scholar, suggested that the word punya evolved from the ancients. The Iberian word is Polly. It means city in the western world, the loss of the land of Jesus, and other researchers claim that the root of the term wire is the Phoenician word speed, which means forging metal. The floors were metallic or forged. As a possible source of the forest, the possibilities are somewhat endless. The word Spain means border or frontier because the peninsula is in the far west of Europe, but strangely enough it is possible from Tiv. It could also be a story of Phoenician importance, the land of the rabbits, which he would write because it's fun and really new. Defeated in the area under Emperor Hadrian, they show a female figure with a hare at our feet and the Greek geographer Strabo. He wrote about Spain and even called it the land of the rabbits, an odd origin for the name of a country, but that might be true. The following is a small country that borders Spain and Dora. Most of the origins of European names are uncertain. There is no official story. This is certified and recognized as a Special Origin in most cases and makes sense since it is the
US state. They were named 200 years ago, most of these countries or countries, or over a thousand years ago, especially if the documents weren't. . they are actually present in the approved case. The main theory is that it is derived from the name of a pre-Roman Iberian tribe. The end is INS, a Greek philosopher. Polybios describes these people as inhabitants of the valley. Where Andorra is today, the Carthaginian army over the Pyrenees during the Punic Wars took its name from the law in the passage. The walls can be derived from a local term. Antia in Basque, which means big or huge. Another theory is that Andorra May is descended from the Arabic Aldara, which means the densely forested place when the Moors conquered the Iberian Peninsula, the valleys of the Pyrenees were covered by vast areas of forest. These areas were not administered by the Moors, but they are what they designate as such
. In fact, Navarro has Reagan, Run, and Orioles. Hence, it means land covered with shrubs, while popular etymology claims that King Charla named the region north after me in relation to the biblical valley of Endor, but even in western France he used the origin as a way to describe the land of the Franco Empire. The name França comes from the Latin word Francia, a word still used to describe the modern country in Italian and Spanish, translated into German by Frank Reich with Dutch and Swedish equivalents, all of which mean land or francs . Frank's proper name is apparently related to the old French word Frank, which means free or sincere, which in turn comes from medieval French Latin, i.e. free in the sense of free service. Since
France is widely believed to be the seat of the modern republic, the original land of the free eventually becomes the land of the free. One of the ideals of the French Revolution in France is Monaco. It was hard for me to find information about it. So that's what we got in the 6th century BC. Found. Monica was a colony of houses and Greeks and illegal immigrants, the first residents of the region, and in this place called Monaco, which roughly means celibacy, helps convey the meaning of a pueblo who lived far away from others, or in a house. . A rico comes from a Greek word that combines the words manos, which means alone, and oikos, which, according to an ancient myth, means house. They would have walked around and kidnapped the previous gods. A temple was built in his honor and as the only temple in this region, the existence of this temple, regardless of
its mythological justification, could actually justify the choice of the only named monk's house, as it was the only temple before. I climbed further east. Cover north. All these western countries, Iceland, are there and the name sounds very clear, the Icelandic tradition. The bill states that a Norwegian explorer named NE Dot was the first Norwegian to arrive on the island in the 19th century. He called it Schneider or Schneeland because it was snowing. And finally the name was changed from snow to ice below, it's island in Irish. The country's name is Aiden, and both are derived from Ireland. From Old Irish, is a goddess in Irish mythology and her name is said to mean something like running water. However, she was widely believed to be the goddess of the earth, and some researchers suggest that the origin is an abundant
earth, rather than running water, which the Romans called an island, it was evil. Nia is a name found in Greek geographic reports during their exploration of northwestern Europe in 323 BC. BC the Greek explorer Pythia also called the island, in a Greek interpretation of the local Celtic name? Hence the first name. And next to it? Great Britain, the name of the United Kingdom is very simple. It is a kingdom of many countries. Though some people claim that the United Kingdom was founded by the Act of Union between England, Wales and Scotland in 1707. The name. The United Kingdom was officially adopted until 1801 when Ireland joined the union formerly called Great Britain to describe the main island of the British Isles. This terminological map is useful for an accurate understanding, understanding of written differences is derived from the Roman term Britannia which was the Latin version of the local British, as the
native British named Pathani are considered to be of Celtic origin and the painted can mean in relation on paintings. . what the natives did with their bodies. While the big reasons have to name, they have to stand out against the French region of Brittany, which looks similar but looks much smaller. And the other is thanks to King James' ego. The first wanted to make it clear that he was not just the king of ancient Roman Britain. But across the island, the country name England is derived from the old English name England, which means the land of corners. As one of the tribes that settled in Britain in the early Middle Ages, the name Scotland is derived from the Latin Roman Scotty, a tribe called Scotty which applied to all of the country's indigenous people, especially the Scots. While England was the land of songs, but Wales is different but similar to what the Welsh word is for Wales and means friends, the word Wales is of
Germanic origin and is a very confusing explanation that I came across. He says this word by which most people know that the country comes from a term used by the Anglo-Saxon invaders against the British, referring to foreigners or foreigners, even if the Welsh came out of the country, back to continental Europe . covers everything and three in a row. The Dutch government issued a statement last year urging people to stop using the term Netherlands and simply call it Netherlands as the Netherlands only refer to two of the country's 12 provinces and therefore its use is technically incorrect is. So why does it exist? These three terms, the Dutch Netherlands, the Netherlands, historically all of the Benelux countries have been referred to as the Netherlands because most of their land is below the average sea level. The Dukes of Burgundy, who ruled the region in the 15th century, were referring to the territories when they landed here. For some reason, Nether London later translated it into contemporary Dutch documents.
From a regional point of view, it was necessary that the area at the end of the Middle Ages was the area between the resettlements and the rivers of the Lower Rhine. The fact that many people refer to the country as the Netherlands should be. With these two provinces that we have mentioned throughout history, the Netherlands became the most economically and politically important district of the Dutch region, especially when the country was founded, and therefore the nation. It would be like naming the origins of England and London. Derived from the old Dutch term Portland, which means forest, when it comes to the Dutch term in English, people use the Dutch word, people describe the Netherlands, it is about the romantic ancestors of the almonds that are shared with the Germans . similarly called Dortch. However, a Dutchman and a Dutchman are also called in Dutch. I am sure that Belgium's mispronunciation gained independence from the Netherlands later in history. However, when they became independent, their
modern name comes from the Latin word used in Belgium. The book by Julius Caesar Guerras da Gallica describes the area around 55 BC. C., which in turn takes its name from the native tribe of the child Bell from an Indian word similar to Belgian, meaning people swollen with anger. The history of Luxembourg as a nation is also quite young, but it began with the construction of the Luxembourg Castle. Early Middle Ages 963, Siegfried. The first account of our cave traded land with local monks for an old Roman fortress supposedly named that, which I won't even try to read, usually translated as a little castle. Some have linked the origin of the word to a smaller fortress, which could refer to the remains of this ancient Roman watchtower around the ford of Luxembourg, a city that gradually developed and became a
duchy, using versions of the name for it . The English word Germany then developed in what is now Luxembourg and continued with West Germany. The English word Germany is derived from the Latin term Germany, which came into use after July and Caesar adopted it for the population of the Eastern Rhine. Essentially, it meant a country inhabited by Germans, the original meaning of Germany is controversial, but it is. to different local tribes in the German mother tongue. The name of the country is Germany, originally a Dotc country. Does it mean German countries that come from the Old High German word, do you learn the meaning of people? So it would be the land of the people, maybe further south, Switzerland is the English name. Switzerland means the country Switzerland, an ancient term that the Swiss finally discovered. They switched to Swiss after the French term. The name is derived from the German language Shiva, sir. That meant a resident of Chivas, one of the original cantons and formerly independent states of the region.
The first to be formed is the Swiss Confederation, apparently shieff is derived from the old sweet high German, which means burned in relation to the area of force that was burned and built. Although I sometimes use the term Elvitenbund of the Gallic tribe lvt, who lived in the Swiss territories before Roman times, the small mission principality of Liechtenstein is almost or almost inland. Mine is a rare case today, but the fact that it's still a principality explains it. The name of the country is that of its ruling dynasty, which in turn derives its name from the wounds of Tynecastle, which means doesn't it? Loss related and obsolete, kind of stone that is Luce and stone, i.e. stone that keeps moving, southern Italy or homeland of Italy. There are many different hypotheses about the origin, because the name comes from an old term from southern Italy. Vitaly you, that is, the
land of young cattle. Another is that it would take the name of the legendary place, King Eats a Coward, it seems that the Greeks somehow called it that in Italy or in two countries, the Vatican and San Marino. The Vatican City State is named after the Vatican Hill. The geographical location of the states, which in turn derives from the name of an Etruscan colony, an Indian tribe, vodka or the Vatican in the general area. The Romans called them Agatha Tucanos, which means. The area while San Marino, which was one, of st. Mason Martinez from Rob Island. In today's Croatia, Martinez is said to have been the founder of the state by founding a colony on Monte Titano in 301. A tea bag, two large countries and heading north again, Austria, what a Latinization of the German word for. is land. , on foot, and
comes from Old High German or the personal word EG, which means Ostbahn. Austria was originally a prefecture of the Bovard area founded in 976. At that time, the new Austrian basin was the easternmost extension of Bavaria, which may justify the eastern meaning of the word. As a result, the Czech Republic had various names throughout its existence, referring to the regions of the original English name. Ford is bohemian and comes from the Latin boy. Oh! I am. which means the homeland of the Gallic tribe of boys. The current English name for the Czech Republic is derived from the actual control word for there. Yes, the country is traditionally divided into three regions, Bohemia-Moravia and Czech-Silesia, and is moving to its former national partner, Slovakia. In theory, the name Slovak meansin the country of the Slavs
mother tongue. It seems that the origin of the Slav itself is unknown. In North Holland the origin of the name Poland comes from the West Slavic tribe of Pollen E. The name originated from the tribe inhabited in the region in the middle of the 16th century. Paula is really kneeling. Derived from the word Protoslav, which means field, the Polish name for Poland is Polska, which I believe share. It originated in the Nordic countries, starting with Denmark, divided into two parts, then one or more Marcos. This is disputed with the origin of the fact of each party. It can refer to Donnie, a local tribe, or a former legendary King of the Danes. Although most scholars suggest that the word comes from what means flat land while the sign would mean forest. Border in the sense of Marchers, the names of many medieval border areas, which probably refer to the Schleswig border forests in Norway, have two official names, as they apparently have two official writing systems, I had no idea. They are
Nordic and Nordic in English. The name Norway is derived from the ancient word meaning north way or way north and it seems that its original origin is the same name as Sweden. Interestingly, it seems to have come from the Dutch language since 1280. References can be found in Middle Dutch and refer to Allah Devon in Swedish, which means the land of sweets. Like the native Swedish name, the fetish is a combination of the word Seville. And literally the kingdom of candy means, the origin of candy is commonly thought to be derived from an ancient word resembling the oath. Obsessed with meaning related to one's own tribe. If I say a similar ancient word, it is because a lot of those ancient words are modern reconstructions of We believe it is being used and we are trying to represent it with our modern letters. Finland, apparently in English, is related to the Finn tribe who lived in the region.
literally a wrong country, the country's Swami and the origin of the word is uncertain. Although some claim it has a common origin with the name Sami, the indigenous group in Lapland, whose origin may mean the ancient Baltic word zemi, is moving to Lowell and moving to the three Baltic countries. The name Estonian Ins is derived from an ancient people. For the Roman historian Tacitus, he wrote, he lived in the region all year round. 98 80, while the early Scandinavian components refer to the region as an Icelandic connection with the old Norwegian word for east, as it is located in the eastern part of Scandinavia. The origin of Latvia is similar to that of Latvia. It seems to come from the names of the ancients, like the galleons of another regional tribe, while Lithuania or Lea Tova have an unknown origin, but there are some possibilities,
some say it would be Yetta, which would refer to a small place des eighth in the river valley, the general area where the first Lithuanian state is located. At first, another hypothesis emerged, derived from the word lacey. The name of a local group of Belarusian warriors from the 13th century, as we saw at the beginning of the video, means white, Russia. One theory has it that this name was chosen to describe the old port of indigenous land that was Christianized very early compared to what was called Black Ruthenia, which was still considered space. Aegon While others say it is simply because the locals wore white clothes, and some even claim the color is white, locals associate it with the West and because it was the territory of the Western Domain, it became known as such in the most of them grow up in Europe, if not all in Europe, Russia. Russia's name is derived from
its medieval roots and states. However, this name became more popular later in history and the country came to be known as Kaya Ruse. Léa de su pueblo, which can be translated as Russian Country or Country of Rules. The rulers themselves come from medieval roots, merchants and Nordic warriors who came from the Baltic Sea and founded an estate in Novgorod. It later became Kevin's tactic. Speaking of Kiev, Ukraine, its name dates back to at least the 12th century. Numerous lands on the border between the Polish territories and Keven are successful and therefore it is widely believed to be a border area, the name Moldova is derived from the Moldova River. It was in the valley of that river. That the original principality of Moldova was founded in 1359. According to legend, the prince who named the river after his hunting dog. Malta got
lost in a river after a hunt, but in current linguistics it means that it apparently stems from fame, that means fir and everything that means property. Although some also believe that it comes from the ancient Gothic word. Also dirty meaning and reference. The etymology of the river Romania is literally my favorite across Europe, it comes from Latin and Roman-Roman memes or from Rome, also known as Valkia in part of its region. The current name seems to come from today's Roman Empire. It was originally known as Asia until it was invaded and conquered by the Romans, who drove or oppressed most of Dustin's indigenous population. It's called Roman Emperor. Trajan took a hundred thousand people from the Roman territories and placed them under. What has Romania got to do with the gold mines in the region since then? Last year it was Romanized, became
Romanian and the Romanian language evolved from this population in relation to Hungary, the age of the name is due to historical associations, with a hungry hunt for the others, another city in the region. The rest of the word comes from the Latinized form of one's own growth. A Greek name, from the old Bulgarian, well, new intern from Turkish or not good. It's as interesting as the names of the countries. It was the collective name of the tribes that revealed this development between languages from an initial definition to the actual adaptation or translation that is recorded today. Who later joined the Bulgarian tribal union that rules the eastern parts of the famine. After the others inside, the Hungarian Aryans call their country Maggie. Azarkh liked to combine the two words man. ER, which means orders in Hungarian, and Arc, which means land. The word Maggie comes from the
name of one of the seven most important semi-nomadic Hungarian tribes. Yeti Maggie didn't mean anyone there. And Eddie was referring to the name of the Slovenian family line. It seems literally to mean the country of the Slovenes, which shares the origin of Slovakia and, as we have seen, the origin of the Slavs is indefinite. The name Croatia comes from the medieval Latin word with the same letters. Croatia, it seems, is the root of the word third century syphilis or keeps the word that is the part. The origin of what this originally meant is uncertain, but most seemed to believe that it was the name of a Slavic tribe in the region. Although I came across this definition, according to which the Croatian and Slavic languages mean those that have many references to Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bosnia is mentioned for the first time in the manual of the Byzantine Emperor Constantineadministered by Olympus
VII of the Middle Ages,. . X, which describes the boys' little lot in the area with that original name. Apparently it's coming from the river that crosses the region. In Bosna, which would be derived from the Illyrian and American buses, it literally means flowing water when it comes to the second half of the country's name. This is Covina, which means something like Herzogsland in Zog-Land, from the original German word for Herzog. From the Bosnian nobleman stepian voice, whose title got fed up with who and the coast and then Serbia. The origin of the name is unclear. It seems first to come from the word syrup and sword used to broadly characterize the peoples of this region throughout history. But there are literally more than a dozen ways these people have been named, although they still are. In any case, they all seem to have a common origin in the B series of an Old Slavonic language. And that would mean family or alliance, by the way. The country's English name comes from the
Venetian and translated as Black Mountain from The Aspect of Mount Lawson, a Latin name that dates back at least 1397. The local name is Khan Agora and has the same black meaning as the mountain. The problematic region of Kosovo is called Kosovo in English or Kosovo in Albanian. But Kosovo itself has its roots in a Serbian word for Merlo, which originated from the battle of 1389 in the so precisely named cultural area. Il Merlo was completed with the short version of the name. applies to the entire state. In 1864 the Albanians called Kosovo that. Daniel is the name of an ancient kingdom and then a Roman province that encompassed what is now Kosovo. This name comes from the old data stock. Danny is likely related to an old local word
meaning the couple is beyond their western borders, Albania, as the country was called. Dating from the Middle Ages as a Latin opera, the origin is more than likely the local elite. The Ian Tribe of Albany in one hundred and fifty d - Greek geographer. Potala i. He made a map of the area, identifying a community in the area called Albino Police. And there was a medieval colony, also called Albin, today the Albanians call their country. Maintain the area that is gradually replacing the Arab region. They used it in the Middle Ages. Both terms are commonly interpreted as the land of eagles. Perhaps the north indicated on the Albanian flag in connection with North Macedonia relates to its geographical location. And it was added as a commitment to Greece, where the ancient Greek Kingdom of Macedonia and what is now the region of Macedonia are located.not be used in the argument as to whether he or she will
This name shouldenter the country. The reality is, yes. And here is the origin, modern Macedonia comes precisely from the Greek word Macedonia and the ancient kingdom, which takes its name from its place. The Macedonian people, the indigenous term Madedonia, seems to mean great people who describe the great nature of the local people when it comes to one of the world's oldest civilizations in Greece. The name of the country in modern Greek is very ancient Greek. It was in him. The country is also known as the Atlantic Republic. Which comes from the Greek word. The Atlantic coast is a legend. This name comes from the mythological character Elena, who survived a great flood with which zoos destroyed humanity. As a result, the Romans became the founding father of all Greek tribes, eventually translating Latin names like Grace and the gray sofa from the garage name. One of the first ancient Greek tribes. The name of the tribe itself is derived from an old word, get,
which means to grow old as a turkey. Bulgaria is the name derived from a tribe of Turkish origin. In this case the Bulgarians who founded the first Bulgarian empire. Its name is not fully understood and it is difficult to trace back to its original meaning, but it could be derived from the Turkish word beluga, which means to stir or mix, and its derivative Moo, gak, which means turmoil or disorder. The meaning can be extended to the concept of rebellion while, having most of its territory in Asia, it reaches Europe. So I included turkey here, the English name for turkey comes from the medieval Latin tour, Kia, which means the land of the Turks. The Turks are so called because they are Turks and it is generally accepted that the Turkish name comes from the old term total court migration or Lukas which means servant or name of a wandering cypress, the
origin is somewhat unknown but there are three options presented or as general as possible. Greek word for cypress, tree with the Greek name henna and three native languages from the Iron Age for copper due to the large deposits of metal on the island through foreign trade. The island got its name from the classic Latin word for copper from the then metal expression Cyprus, abbreviated as the face of a coin and finally as Malta. The most common entomology is that the word Alta comes from the Greek word Mellie, which means honey, the ancient Greeks called the island Melitta, which means sweet honey, probably due to the honey production in Malta, the Romans called the island Melitta, which was latinization of the Greek name. Others suggest that the word Malta derives from the Phoenician word malekith, which means port or port, and this is the origin of the name of all European countries. I left out Georgia,
Azerbaijan and Armenia, which I will then include.
