For me, I like countries which has the article 'the' on its name every time it is being mentioned. I dunno, it's just that the presence of 'the' makes that country very special.

e.g. The Philippines, The Netherlands, The Bahamas, The Gambia, The Marianas, etc. aside from that, I also like Australia, Mexico, Turkey, Colombia, Brazil, Morocco, Puerto Rico

Kind of funny that OP listed Nicaragua sort of. It was the last central America nation I looked in to just because I hate the sound of it.

For me:

Burma (but not Myanmar)
Vietnam
Bolivia
Finland
Argentina
Russia (THE winner)

Default Which countries do you think have the most beautiful names?

I think this is really hard, if I had to choose, I would choose

1.Puerto Rico (even though it's a commonwealth territory of the USA)
2.Italy
3.Mexico
4.Tie between Costa Rica and Panama
5.Malaysia
6.Colombia
7.Argentina
8.Australia
9.Canada
10.Ireland

I was going to make a list of 5 but it was hard. I think that's about all of them for me.
