I'm half Dutch and considering a Dutch name for DD, if there's one that's pretty, and not too hard to pronounce for British people. Saskia is a family name, which I love, but can't use. Any others you can think of?

Yay for half Dutchies smileThere are lots that work both in English and in Dutch. Anna, Hanna(h), Sara(h), Suzanne, Marie, Linda, Nina, Irene, Charlotte, Lydia, Isabel, to name a few.

Just deleted a few but: Marika, Anneke, Sabina, Caterina, Maria, Mina or Lieve, Liv, Sterre if you change the spelling!

Elisabeth - "Bep"

ooh I have this situation too.

It's very hard - my DH is Dutch - we're going for names that are reasonably known in both English and Dutch... Interestingly we have a lot of Spanish names (Raphael for instance).

My neice is named Anouk, if you like that. Nora/Noor is very popular over there too at the moment.

Thanks. Yes, I was thinking a name that is Dutch in other origin. We like Anouk. Quite like Nora, though DH not convinced. Another kind of like Marlies, but would have to spell it Marlise to avoid it being mispronounced.

delete 'other'. Typing alongside my 2 year old' squirms!

Lotte (but pronunciation might be an issue!)
Mieke

sheepashwap Sun 28-May-17 13:03:05

But after Beatrix (for being a dual name) it's definitely Anouk for me. Strong and pretty name. Can't get more Dutch than that combination!

LizzieMacQueen Sun 28-May-17 13:04:14

what's your 2 year old daughter/son called?

TuddlesAndSisses Sun 28-May-17 13:07:55

I don't know how Dutch it is, but I know a Dutch Lisette and I think it's a beautiful name

Sugarpiehoneyeye Sun 28-May-17 18:05:10

Chloris, Anouk and Marlise, are both very lovely.
I love Marlise !

squoosh Sun 28-May-17 18:07:44

I love the name Anouk!
