In Persia, Germany is called "Alaman". In Portugal it's called "Alemanha".
I know some other countries in the world call it 'Alman' too
Why the name changed?
We're a little bit different from other sites. Here's how:
This site is all about getting answers. It's not a discussion forum. There's no chit-chat.
Good answers are voted up and rise to the top.
The best answers show up first so that they are always easy to find.
The person who asked can mark one answer as "accepted".
Accepting doesn't mean it's the best answer, it just means that it worked for the person who asked.
In Portugal it is called "Alemanha", not "Alman". It is that way because of the tribe living in that region of Europe, "Álamos"

I am from Iran. In Persian language, many words related to Europe are obtained from French language. In Iran we call Germany Alman just because this is the way it is pronounced in French. The first waves of Iranian students in Europe studied in France universities. Also, notice that previously French language was more international than English.
