Are there a countries or nationalities that have a different name in your language than in other languages? (not including countries like "United states" which are different in every language) What is their origin? In Hebrew, for example:
France - צרפת Tsarfat. From the bible.
Spain - ספרד Sfarad. Same
Yemen - תימן Teiman. Same
Egypt - מצריים Mitsrayim. Obviously from the bible.
Greece - יון Yavan. Pretty similar to Arabic and Aramaic, but they pronounce it Yawan. Its origin is from the city Ionia.
As far as nationalities go, one I can think of is Italian איטלקי Italki. Not sure what's the origin of the added k, but it doesn't exist in any other nationality in Hebrew.
