Danish[edit]

Sjælland er Danmarks største ø - Zealand is the largest island of Denmark

Etymology[edit]

Of uncertain origin. Possibly from Old Norse Selund, a compound from selr (seal) + the suffix -und (suffix for placenames), thus meaning place with seals. The later name was Sjóland, which changed the meaning to "sea-land;" see sær (sea).[1] More at Zealand.
