Better written as Nieuw Zeeland, this country was named after Zeeland in the Netherlands by Abel Tasman, the first European explorer to reach it. Tasmania was named after this guy.

That's where the old Zealand was, in case you were wondering.
"Hey, Tasman! Wat dat eiland u is?"
"Het is een prachtige plaats! Ik ga het Nieuw Zeeland "
