well the only reason it's called Seeland in Denmark, is because you can't pronounce Sjælland in english. So we decided to name it Zealand/Seeland, although Zealand is the most commonly used name for it.

That also explains why New Zealand is called New and not just Zealand.

I'm pretty sure that the Dutch found New-Zealand. Named after zeeland (which basicly means Sealand)
