I Didn’t Realize that They’re German

Recently, we realized that many Afrikaner surnames are originating from Germany. Previously, we thought that most, if not all Afrikaner surnames are originating from Low Countries, especially the Netherlands. However, many surnames that considered Dutch are actually German. This because of presence of Germans during VOC period while VOC sent Germans to Cape Colony, present South Africa. The reasons of Germans existed on VOC because of economic hardship in Germany. Thus, the Germans joined VOC for better economic prospect. Because of VOC and migration, many German surnames existed in South Africa which are survived until present.

The mistaken surnames are often happened while we referred Afrikaners. This because most Afrikaners are thought as Dutch descent/heritage. The Dutch labeling is done due to the colonization of the Netherlands and VOC in South Africa for more than one century. Because of that, many Afrikaner surnames are spelled and written in Dutch form. One of the surnames which are mistaken as Dutch are Viljoen which is actually derived from French surname Villion.

For years, we always mistaken Afrikaner surnames as Dutch due to name form in Dutch language which is the basis of Afrikaans, one of 11 national languages of South Africa. This thing is also happened on Hana Planckaert idoling scene. At first, Hana and most people though that most Afrikaners are coming from Dutch descent/heritage. But, actually the Afrikaners aren’t Dutch at all. This because Afrikaners are coming from different European countries, they’re the Netherlands, Flanders (present Belgium), France, Germany, Switzerland, Denmark, Sweden and Norway. However, most Afrikaners are coming from the Netherlands, France and Germany.

This Dutch mistake is happened on Meintjes surname which is though as the Dutch surname due to phonological traits. We’ve been mistaken Meintjes as the Dutch surnames for years. Because of this, we referred Meintjes as Fake Dutch. Then, someone read genealogy website and knew that Meintjes is the German surname, not Dutch. After that, we realized that Meintjes is coming from an old German word. Aside of that, Meintjes is originated from Münsterland, a place in Rhine-North Westphalia, Germany.

After realizing that her surname is German, Debora which based on climber Louis Meintjes ordered German folk costume. Previously, she owned a hot pink Dutch folk costume which worn at various events. She had been wearing that costume for years. Then she sold her hot pink Dutch folk costume for good. Other Afrikaners in Visioneer world did the same after the surname origin revealing. From now, she would wear German folk costume as she comes from German descent, not Dutch.

The costume is bought on Zepeto. All of the pictures are taken from Zepeto.

Actually I’m Debora

After two years not seeing, finally we see this woman again. This woman was featured on Hana Planckaert Idoling Blog twice. After that she became a hostess in Terabithia with pink hair for several years. In early 2021, she returned to the idoling scene with new hair color.

Do you know who is she? She’s Debbie Meintjes, a female idol from Eurosport Girls or TopVision Girls. She comes from Pretoria, South Africa, but changed into Amsterdam, the Netherlands by Sagdiyevian people due to censorship of Afrikaners amid bullying of several famous figures. She’s the good friend of few Sagdiyevian comrades.

Actually Debbie’s real name is Debora Meintjes according to legal documents. Debora was born in Pretoria in February 1992, which made her same age with Fyodor Sagdiyev and several other idols/comrades. She has two brothers who 12 and eight years older than her. She also has two nephews and two nieces, one of them is famous.

Debora is pretty short compared with other female idols/comrades, but little taller than some female idols/comrades. She stands 161 cm or 5’3″ which means she’s shorter than admin who stands 163 cm or 5’4″ even with some female idols/comrades like Linda Walscheid who stands 168 cm or 5’6″. She’s pretty small in front of male idols/comrades who stand above 183 cm or 6′, but comparable with men who stand 170-182 cm or 5’7″-5’11” 3/4.

Debora is also slim with 48 kg or 106 lbs which is still small for her height. The reason of her low weight is genetic because her parents and brothers are slim. She rarely eat fatty foods but does snacking. She doesn’t like large serving of meat and prefers white meat.

Debora’s natural hair color is dark brown which inherited by her parents and ancestors. She has almost curly wavy hair which inherited by her mother who has curly hair. Later on her life she straightened her hair in 2017, then permed in 2019. After the perm faded, she turned back to natural hair texture. She has been dyed her hair into warm pink and medium blonde. She went warm pink in 2018-2020. Then she got current medium blonde in 2021.

Debora’s natural eye color is dark green. Many people mistaken her eyes as brown. But actually she has green eyes from her father. She also wears color enhancing contact lenses to empower her eye colors, not changing. She has medium round eyes which are pretty large for most people.
