Welcome Yannick!
There is a Dutchman at my work named Yannik. Is it a popular name in Holland?

How do you know he's from Holland? He could be as well from other regions of the Netherlands...
Oh... AFAIK Yannick is a French name... maybe it happens it's got quite common in the Netherlands as well :)

Er, because Robert (from Groningen) in post #2 wrote "Yannick is another dutchie . . ."?  :)

Anyway, welcome Yannick. You'll be right at home with these insanely fast guys.

To explain: Holland only covers 2 provinces (North and South Holland) out of 12 of the Netherlands. Yet we are all "dutchies" (from the Netherlands). Yes, I'm from Groningen, not Holland :)

It's confusing because ppl from Holland always relate to the Netherlands as Holland, and also outsiders often refer to the Netherlands as Holland. ;)

Since Holland is just a region of the Netherlands, and NOT the whole Netherlands, I was trying to point out that to refer at the whole Netherlands as Holland is quite wrong, and to the Dutchies as "People from Holland" as well, even though as much as I understand it's common....(and this is the reason I was apologizing to Eric for being a bit of a dick ;)).
This said, we can't refer to the whole Netherlands simply as "Holland", it's as though we'd refer to the whole United States of America as "Maine" (to say one), just to give you an idea :)
