The reason Denmark, Norway and Sweden are known a Scandinavian nations is the Scandinavian landmass, not the a different way. Today just Norway and Sweden possess this promontory, however generally Denmark used to have arrives in southern Sweden. Until the age of the railroad, oceans and conduits associated as opposed to isolated, so it was regular to have arrive on the two sides of a strait. In the event that we go additionally back ever, it appears that the first country of the Danes was in southern Sweden, and they later ventured into what is presently Denmark, where the Jutes were at that point living.

The beginning of the name is for the most part consented to originate from the area referred to today as Scania in southern Sweden. (Skåne in Scandinavian dialects.) The name most likely originates from Skathiney, the island of Skadi, which may allude to the old Norse goddess Skadi or the indistinguishable word for hurt, harm. I support the goddess speculation due to the closeness to the promontory Onsøy (Odin's island) not very far away in south-east Norway, an island that later ended up associated with the territory in light of the fact that the land has been consistently ascending after the north European ice sheets dissolved. In any case, the name was initially embraced in Latin as Scatinavia and later Scadinavia; the primary n in Scandinavia was presented significantly later, most likely as a merger with the shorter name Scania/Skåne. (Skathiney - > Skaaney - Skåne. The name was composed Skaane in Danish and Norwegian into the 1800s.) Besides, Scandinavia just sounds superior to Scadinavia, so it stuck.
