"My name is Hedwig. A traditional german name that used to be really popular with the upperclass in the late 19th century (in Netherlands) but somehow got forgotten. Love being called hedwig as together with my last name I am sure there is no other. original and strong name yet still a typical girlsname. never been teased because of it." Dec. 4, 2010:
