Ooh you're right. Didn't notice that till now. Pat said Saint instead of Sint. I think Saint and Sint are pronounced differently. I think Marteen and Martin are pronounced the same. It looks like Pat must have messed that up because the PP copy says Sint Marteen (the PP copy misspelled Sint as Saint). I must not have caught that while I was watching the PP copy.
Saint Martin is the name of the entire island, the Collectivity of Saint Martin (aka Saint-Martin) is the name of the northern part of the island owned by France, and Sint Maarten is the Dutch southern part.
Both Saint Martin and Sint Maarten are correct in this context. This isn't Jeopardy! where we need to delve into specifics about colonialization and weird naming conventions.
