Denmark = Sjælland, The Netherlands = zeeland. Both can be interpreted as zealand. The truth is that it was a Dutch (from the netherlands) "explorer" (Abel Tasman) who "discovered" new zealand, so technically it's named after the dutch zeeland. Tasman, as you can see in the name, also "discovered" Tasmania. (He originally called it van diemen land) None of this information is important or interesting, sorry
actually i find this very interesting. i had no idea, i thought it was britain that “found” australia. i also didnt know thats where “tasmania” comes from. thanks for sharing, anon, really this is very interesting!
