According to the site 'archimon', Holland is only the southern part of the Netherlands, the latter being a group name for several areas of country. So Holland is named after someone who owned the land, whereas the Netherlands is a collective name for the 'northern lands' of that region. Interesting question that makes one look up information and learn something!! Well done!
Holland is a region of the Netherlands, although the country is sometimes referred to as Holland, same as the UK is sometimes referred to as England.
