Usage notesEdit

The name of the Netherlands in Latvian is Nīderlande, but, as in many languages, the term Holande is very often used as the name of the whole country, even though it should in principle only apply to the region of the two provinces of North Holland and South Holland (in Latvian, Ziemeļholande and Dienvidholande).
