    Why are there so many words for German/y?
    Germany is not an exception. There are too many other examples.

    Switzerland

    This country has different (while related) names in the four languages spoken therein. In Latin, it is Helvetia. In modern Greek, it is still Helvetia.

    France

    France was named upon a German tribe. In Latin, it is Galia: named upon a Celtic tribe. In modern Greek, it is still Galia.

    Greece

    A name derived from latine Graecia is used in most languages. In Greek, however, it is Hellas/Hellada. In Turkish, it is Yunanistan (yunan - Greek), named upon an eastern local name for Greek people, related to "Ionian see".

    Hungary

    This is also a confusing name derived from Latin. In Polish, it was changed to Węgry and then went to Russua as Венгрия.

    However, Hungarians call themselves Magyarok and call their country Magyarorsz
