MJ, then? Sure, but now I'm curious to know your real name!

You know who needs to take the test? April. I'm betting she'll be right down there with me.

But Dutch names are cool! I actually have a faint idea (though just a faint one) of some Dutch pronunciation since my uncle lived there for a good few years - he saw U2 in Nijmegen on ZooTV.

Incidentally, I'm well-known for my love of Russian names, to the point that I was nicknamed Vladimir in grade eight. And then added Vladimir to my middle names because I could.

I thought we'd gotten her to take it?

I just don't remember her score if she did!

If she did, I don't remember, and I would've remembered hers.

I've always been thankful my parents gave me a French name rather than a bland English one. Though my English grandfather was so appalled that they chose a FRENCH name that he called me Andrew until I was about 2-3!

There, try to pronounce that!
Ah, thank you. It's not as hard to pronounce as my ex boyfriend's name.

They are? I like foreign names way more than Dutch names! They're usually so simple. Anyway, cool that you're uncle lived here for a few years. What city did he stay in?

Please don't quote me

The first part is okay, but the last part is more like the German 'lein', as in 'stein', so in English it sounds more like 'line' I guess.

Thank you! Lol he really called you Andrew because of that?

I like the name André though

Please someone tell me why I am filling this thread with multiple posts instead of using multi-quotes?

Oh, I prefer complex names. Always have. I find English names dreadfully dull most of the time. No offence to any Johns here, but I feel especially sorry for anybody who has that most standard of standard names inflicted on them.

My uncle lived in Arnhem mostly. He learnt to bake there and now runs an amazing gourmet bakery in New Zealand.

Ooh, I got that right. Awesome.

Clearly, five years of German in high school paid off. (Incidentally, in the last thread, you mentioned the similarities between the two languages, and even from my shoddy German knowledge, I've found that I can read some basic Dutch.)

I like more complex names too. Always makes me wonder what the meanings or originalities of them are. I've never been to Arnhem, only drove past it. Hmm, gourmet bakery... Now I'm hungry

Yes, although I hate to admit it, German and Dutch show to have more similarities than differences. Being able to reading some basic Dutch is good
