So last month I finally decided to stop writing fiction in Dutch, and start writing in English, which meant translating everything I had already written in Dutch for my wip The Army of Quermo. Now, that isn’t so hard, but I did come upon a problem: the names. A lot of the names are in Dutch, and some of them might not be that easy to pronounce for non-Dutchies. It still takes place in The Netherlands, but I was wondering about some names might need changing. So here’s where I need your help! Can you pronounce the following names?
- Van Liere
- De Ster
- Petra Adelen
Well, that’s less than I thought! Most of my first names are pronounceable (most of them aren’t Dutch, as a lot of Dutch names aren’t really used anymore nowadays) and some I’m just certain that non-Dutchies won’t be able to pronounce them so I left them out haha.
Please let me know in the comments if you can pronounce them!
