I do know that when the British first invaded Ireland, they didn't want them speaking Irish cause they couldn't understand them, so when they asked the names of the counties (states), and the Irish would say something like Dubh Linn, the British just decided to make it sound more English, which is where Dublin came from. Although now its Baile Ath Cliath in Irish Makes no sense to me either
tldr It could be a result of british invasions

I guess to avoid awkward mispronunciations that end up becoming their own words for each language anyway. Brits saying "Sverige" would end up making it sound like a completely different word (Svee-raig? Svee-ridge? Svee-ree-gay?), so they might as well just call it Sweden.

It isn't like that in every case though, let's take finland for example. Most languages call it finland or something similar, but finns call it simply "Suomi" which is nothing alike. It's probably been that swedes have looked at some plot of land and though "Let's call it Finland" while some finns have been there and thought "Let's call this Suomi".
And well, Swedish, English and German are related to each other as languages so their versions aren't too far from each other.

it lets them store them for long periods of time before cooking em and have them remain fresh. The reason restaurants don't have live chicken is because you have to properly flay and clean it before hand. Before that chickens are kept in equal-worse conditions until they're ready to be prepped and eaten.
