I guess that would be a typical Anglophile 
reaction, since in Dutch it's also Fatherland, 
(and not motherland) and I guess the Scandinavian 
countries do the same. Germans still speak about 
Vaterland in a political sense, for instance für 
Fürst und Vaterland, while Heimat is more used in daily life.

The French speak about Patrie and Spanisch and 
Italians about patria, but I have no idea if they 
have the same sentiment against the word fatherland.
