There is a history behind the discovery of the name New Zealand. In the year 1642, Dutch sailor Abel Tasman was the first European to discover the country. He mistook the place as an island in Chile. After realizing the mistake 'Nova Zeelandia' was the name that was given. Later, the famous explorer Captain James Cook gave the name New Zealand and in this way the country got its name.
