You shouldn't see it as c+e, but c+eu. And eu is like the French eu (as in Bleu, Dieu, ...) or your Danish ø.


Yes, but if you had a French word with the letter combination "ceu" it would be an s-sound. If you wanted a k-sound you would then have to spell it queu.


I thought the name was in Dutch/Flemish.
Aka The Ginger One.

Yes, but the other poster said I should take it as a French eu.

That name makes me think of the Dutch/Flemish dub of the Lion King

English speakers, it's probably best pronounced as "De Kerning".



There's no "r" in De Ceuninck

Just pronounce it as TheKing which is the literal tanslation


lol - No, there is no "r" in the Deceuninck, i never said there was, but English speakers will come much closer to pronouncing it correctly if they pronounce it as "kerning". Especially if pronounced the English way (not the American way).

Petr Vakoc will be racing again in 100 days. He talks about his crash and the road to recovery. Very interesting read!
