Can someone tel me what the difference is??
Has he ever been called kuijt or always kuyt?
Same with van Nistelrooij/van Nistelrooy and Van Hooydonk/van Hooijdonk
So its a Dutch thing?
thanks for dat.. will get kuyt on my jersey so
It's Kuijt, Van Nistelrooy and Van Hooijdonk.
yes correct.. jus checked the official website of Feyenoord
Odd. He might have (had) Kuyt on his shirt, but i'm pretty sure it's spelled Kuijt.
And I have seen van Hooydonk and van Nistelrooij, plenty of places before.
Yeah, I don't know. Odd Language :mrgreen:.
Its van Nistelrooy here in England but it says van Nistelrooij on the UEFA website. I think only the players themselves would know the correct way of spelling it.
Unless im mistaken the dutch use ij for y. Im not completly sure how it works but both are correct.
I've read somewhere sometime ago that Kuijt had to change his name to Kuyt to play for the dutch NT or whatever, since they said he was born in Yugoslavia.
I've also read that van Nistelrooy is van Nistelrooij's commercial name, that's why that appears on his shirt.
It depends on the family. In Holland, 'ij' is the same as 'y' although 'ij' is more traditional and 'y' more modern seemingly.
Well, in South America are called Kuyt, Van Nistelrooy or Van Hooijdonk definitely, hehehe; sounds better to the language.
Actually I believe he is actually called 'Kunt'.
Close thread please mods.
:lol: Your wish is my command.
