Random fact: my dad and his father have different first names (Peter and Pieter) but when translated to English, they have the same name. Not sure how Dutch got two versions.
@Aeron yeah, I find it quite interesting. My dad’s been living in English-speaking places for 35 years and he still comments about how English speakers will call him by his dad’s name
@levisan can you hear a difference between the two when spoken? To me, they sound the same in english. In dutch you can hwre the difference ofcourse.
