Only 8 wks pg so getting ahead of myself, but DD1 has a lovely traditional Dutch name (won't disclose as will out me!). I'd quite like something along the same lines if DC2 is a girl.

So please give me your favourite Dutch girls' names! Ideally that work in English so eg not something like Loes (loose??!) or Sjoukje (sp/pn nightmare).

TIA

Posted too soon.

I know a Sanne (g) and a Janneke (g) and a Reinier (b).

I know a Camarie (g) too but I'm not sure if she's Dutch or Siuth African.

I like Femke. "Fem-Cuh"

I don't think there would be pron. issues with Inge. Much less than spelling issues from other suggestions!

Sanne might run in to teasing over Sanitory though.....

Femke sounds/looks like some sort of womens' sanitary product. Sanitary towels or pantyliners or "Intimate deodorant" <shudder> Sorry!

Marjoleine

Beautiful name

And Leine or even Layna would work well as an English nickname
