I don't know the answer, but just to add more complexity to your question,
the country some refer to as Holland is properly called the Netherlands.
People from there call themselves Netherlanders. Holland is just a
province of the country known as the Netherlands.
OT but it bugs me!
Pennsylvania Dutch = German
Deutsch = German
Dutch = Hollander
How did Hollanders become "Dutch"?
And how did Deutsch become German?
Thanks for the favor of a response!
The Holland part is really interesting. I grew up near Holland Michigan
which I always
thought named after the country! Yet Germans (Deutschmen) call people
from the Netherlands "Hollanders" as if from that country.
Oh Well! Back to tires, oil and valve lifter adjustment!!!
