Why is this spelled with an 'h' in English?
If anyone has information as to why "Lithuania" got an 'h' in English which seems to appear in no other world language, least of all in Lithuanian, nor even in Lithuanian pronunciation (which I understand is [lɪəˈtuːvə]), it would be interesting to write this here. --Gro-Tsen 13:04, 29 November 2011 (UTC)
- Yes, it is interesting. By the way, I saw a spelling "Esthonia" for Estonia in an old English book I was reading recently. --Vahag 13:26, 29 November 2011 (UTC)
- Those were just my guesses. I am not confident enough to add them to etymology without sources. --Vahag 23:53, 29 November 2011 (UTC)
