In Curaçao, we tend to mash-up mom and dad’s name (sometimes grandmother and grandfather too) resulting in truly unique concoctions, often very difficult to pronounce and therefore reduced to “Juni” and “Dèka”, “Zusje” (little sister in Dutch) and “Broertje” (little brother in Dutch), or simply Mientje (pron: Meencheh), Liesje (pron: Leesheh), Suzy or Bob.
Anyway, here’s our list for today. All real people, for real.
Twins: Sandylu and Lusandy
And our favorite twin boys: Chris and NoChris
[We just wonder… What if their mother tells Chris, “No! No Chris, you’re not allowed to go to the beach!” Confusing, noh?!]
