Duitsland in Dutch. Pretty much the same, but other languages indeed use other names, although Scandinavian languages use Tyskland, which sounds similar.

I don't think there is a language other than Hungarian that calls some country Magyarország.

Not exactly like that, but some languages have a more similar name than "Hungary".

Mađarska, Maďarsko

On the other, hand Polish Węgry is quite weird and doesn't seem to match other Slavic languages.

Polish version is probably derived from russian "Венгрия" transcripted "Vengrija".

In some Slavic languages we distinguish pre-1918 Hungary (Uhorsko) and post-1918 Hungary (Maďarsko).

Montenegro is a Venetian word, it's simply used in most other languages as well.

In Romanian we call it Ungaria, but the poeple are called both "unguri" and "maghiari".
The same for Germany, called Germania, but the people both "germani" and "nemţi"

Actually it was opposite, Russians took "Węgry" later from Polish, Poles used this word expressively to describe Ongur tribes which settled in Europe.

Finnország. -ország is a typical ending for country names, somewhat like -land. (EDIT: corrected, thanks to Attus)

Of other EU languages Estonian, Latvian and Lithuanian use names of the same origin as Suomi: Soome, Somija and Suomija respectively.
