Introduction

Also known as Holland, the Netherlands is a country in Western Europe with a population of 17 million people. Netherlands means “lower countries”, making the name appropriate as only about half of its land is more than one meter above sea level. The Netherlands is home to the Port of Rotterdam, which is the largest port in Europe. With a lengthy history of social tolerance, the Netherlands is known as a liberal country and was the first country to legalize same-sex marriage in 2001. During your search for a name for your canine companion, take a look at the Netherlands. You will likely find that the country offers a myriad of opportunities to consider.
