Proud to be an American
Not blind. Not uninformed. We are party to atrocities. But the response of the world after 9/11 is worth noting. Even our most dire enemies offered aid. We should all be so lucky.
It does sound kind of 'oddish', but I guess it depends on your native tongue. It's still a far cry from Dominique van Roost, which is still top of my list of weird Belgian tennis player names. Kirsten Flipkens is making a move, though. Not to mention Daphne van de Zande.
Clijsters is not a very common name over here, in fact I'd say it's pretty unique. Flipkens is also a very rare name. Names with "Van....", "Van De...." or "Vande" are everywhere, just like names ending in "....mans" or "man".
