I imagine the "yiddish" answer is due to the lack of "y" in dutch words.

It's "Oranje Nassau", not orange nassau. And is that Joop's real last name, Zoetemelk? -

Also, the correct name of the former currency is "gulden". I'm quite surprised that no attempt was made to anglicize Maastricht, Rotterdam or Amsterdam.
