675. Curaçao Baby Names (Part 5)

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.
