stmblar asked: Hallo, ben je Nederlandse? Hello, are you Dutch? In 1983, I saw the movie 'Hans, het leven voor de dood' about the poet and composer Hans van Sweeden. I was 19 then, and I always remembered that he named his daughter Renee Ondine. I don't know why I did. Do you happen to be her? Regards, Sieger

Hi Sieger,

I’m afraid I am no not Dutch, or related to Hans van Sweeden.  Renee is my first name, but Ondine is just a name/word that I like the meaning and idea behind, sounded right, and when I googled it, no one else seemed to have that name.  I guess I was wrong!  Glad to learn about her though and will probably look up Hans van Sweeden and try to learn some more.  Thanks for you interest!

Renee Ondine
