No, it's not, actually. Holland is only part of the Netherlands.
well, yes. but: in slovakia the name for the country is holandsko
(slovak spelling for holland). maybe it insults some people in
netherlands but that's how it is. so for me it makes perfect sense to
call that country holland, I didn't even knew it's called netherlands
until I learned english...
I am sure that is not the only example where the name of the country
is confused or country has completely different names in different
so it makes sense to stick with _some_ standard. adjusting the names
based on personal preference of one or another person (or group of
people) doesn't make much sense - you're getting into issues that cannot
be satisfactorily resolved.
