Name Question

[spelling en uitspraak]
How do you pronounce 'gezellig'? What is the difference between 'eu' and 'ui'? How do you write...? You can use the phonetic keyboard if you are familiar with phonetic symbols.

Name Question

Post by ArthurW » Sun Nov 14, 2010 8:48 pm

Hi all,

I have a question about the spelling of a Dutch name. It is a girls name and is pronounced Nu-ell. But I'm not sure if the spelling is Nuelle or something else. I've tried Google'ing it but no help there. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Arthur

Yep that must be it. If I remember correctly it means Christmas. Thanks for the help mate.
