Can you please accept only the family names for all of them? Van Houten works, but not Van Gogh...
And I tried William of Orange but it didn't worked, the name in dutch is too complicated!
Sep 15, 2014
By almost all is only the family name accepted, by van Gogh was an error, that is changed now.

Frank still didn't work. Also secretary has a typo. And please fix your errant capitalisation, it's distracting. Only Dutch DJ I knew was Tiesto. Not quite sure all these are as internationally known as Dutch like to pretend. :) I am also sure there's more footballers who played for both Ajax and Barcelona and are famous and Dutch. Also Maxima... She is Argentinian no matter how badly you want to adopt her.

What is so complicated in Willem van Oranje? - English and Dutch are both Germanic languages so, with little effort, you should be able to figure out the proper spelling of the names. It's not rocket science.

You should be more specific in the description of Within Temptation - as it is now, Golden Earring would be correct too. Or even Shocking Blue.

Um... Antoni van Leeuwenhoek's actual name is AntonIE, which isn't even an accepted answer.

For Sillie: Queen Maxima was born in Argentina. In order to marry Prince Willem-Alexander, who is now the King of the Netherlands, she became a naturalized Dutch citizen. Thus it is both appropriate necessary to acknowledge her as the Dutch Queen.
