Sibset of the Week: The Nuyens

Nick Nuyens, from

Names from our Belgian and Dutch friends featured heavily on last week’s list of surprising names given by celeb parents. It seems high time, therefore, that we talk about a family from one of those countries.

Since the Olympics have been in the news all day, we’ve going to talk about a cycling couple from Belgian. Both Nick and wife Evy are professional cyclists, specialising in road tracks. Together they’ve welcomed three sons:




Can’t help but wonder where they plan to go from here, should they have additional children. It is very much a closed, themed set of word names starting with St-, since Sterre means star in Dutch. My first thought is Story, used as a middle name by Minnie Driver in 2008. Further along the path are Steel, Stable, Stitch, Stone, Stream and Strum.

Food for thought? What about if they have a daughter?

    I think Story is what they’d choose for a girl. I would say Stella(r), but that’s quite clsoe to Sterre in meaning.


  2. Sebastiane

    I really like this sibset. I have been digging Sterre lately.


  3. Sebastiane

    I was always under the impression that Sterre is a female name though, hmmm.


  4. Maybe Sten?

    For a girl – Starling, Stria or Stine.
