Hi there.

In Denmark they are called "grønspætter", which can be interpreted in a  
similar way to what Michael explained about the swedish name. But  
grønspætte is only the name of a bird, and not the name of an  
unexperienced person.. so maybe the name in danish "got lost in  
translation" from swedish..?
