It sounds kinda dumb when I think about it. It's not really a country name, more of just what we are really. Any country could name themselves the United something.

United states aren't real united. Always arguing about politics and may I remind you that thy had a civil war once?

It's the united states.

Guys calm down it's called Greenland because the Vikings that lived here didn't want anyone to take over their country, Iceland, so they named this Greenland so others would move here and they could stay in a good place.

Greenland is ice, (look at Iceland down the list for the rest of comment)

In north korea, democratic = stupid, peoples = no human rights, republic = monarchy.

5 Niger Niger Niger, officially the Republic of Niger, is a landlocked country in Western Africa, named after the Niger River.

Ok, this my friends and I do think is kind of a terrible name for a country because of how it's one letter away from being the bad word, but please don't hate on African Americans. They're people.

One letter off from being that no no word. Doesn't help that it's in Africa.

Get this higher this country also sucks in general.

This needs to be #1

6 Democratic Republic of the Congo Democratic Republic of the Congo The Democratic Republic of the Congo, also known as DR Congo, DRC, DROC, Congo-Kinshasa, or simply the Congo is a country located in Central Africa.

14 Hungary Hungary Hungary is a sovereign state in Europe. It is situated in the Carpathian Basin and is bordered by Slovakia to the north, Romania to the east, Serbia to the south, Croatia to the southwest, Slovenia to the west, Austria to the northwest, and Ukraine to the northeast.

Hungary's name is a disgrace to Hungarians as the name Hungary relates to the Huns which weren't that nice and so is Europeans call the Hungarians after that even though theirs no relations. It's just racism. The name Hungary could be easily changed to be similar to the Hungarian name of Hungary, Magyarorzag.

If you are Hungary get a Turkey and boil it in Greece.

If you're Hungary grab a Turkey and bake it in Greece!

Funny the country name, but hungarians are terribly rude people.
