we only have Holland in French "la Hollande", no Netherlands although we say "les antilles néerlandaises" but there is not "Néerland". How should we call you in French?

Duh! Don't I feel stupid!! Yes of course. Then how do we call the people from "les Pays-Bas" des pays bassiens? Ou des Hollandais? ou des Néerlandais? C'est compliqué n'est-ce pas.

Guess what --- I think Black Panther thought that the explanation made it easier to understand!!!

It was very funny though.

@Black Panther ... bedankt ik had 'm eerder gezien maar kon het niet meer terugvinden.

I think the Dutch have been masters in making things complicated for centuries. It's a miracle that the
expression 'Ordo ab chao' is in Latin, it could have easily been 'Orde uit chaos'. But that would have
been a dead giveaway where it stems from ;)
