So Romanians call it "Olanda", another language confusing "Netherlands" and "Holland"... :,(

So do most (or at least many) Spaniards, I'm afraid. I think it's not so much a matter of confusing one term with another as it is of using the shorter, more common one, 'Holanda'. 'Los PaĆ­ses Bajos' is too much of a mouthful (and has twice as many syllables)!!

Holland is not the Netherlands, it's a part of the Netherlands.
