In Norwegian, Germany = Tyskland. I'm not sure but in Germany, Norway is Norwegen?? but in Norwegian, it's NORGE...

Sweden is American, but in Norwegian, Sweden = Sverige.

Trust me...I find it equally weird >_>

English -- Norwegian

England -- England
Germany -- Tyskland
Netherlands-- Nederland
Hungary -- Ungarn
Sweden -- Sverige
Denmark -- Danmark
Finland -- Finnland
Iceland -- Island
Czec republic-- Tsjekkiske republikk
America -- Amerika
Japan -- Japan
China -- Kina
Poland -- Polen
France -- Frankerike
Greece -- Hellas
Italy -- Italia
Spain -- Spania
Austria -- Østerrike

just some of the countries we spell differently.... but we're not too far off the English I guess... but we pronounce letters abit differently than english people though...and Norwegians have the Æ Ø Å sounds as well
