What is Saskia? Is it just someone's name?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Lenkvist

It is. Apparently the developers of the course added names of their loved ones.

Saskia is a common Dutch name for women, yes.

It's also very common here in Indonesia.

That's interesting as I think it is Latin for "woman from Saxony" (=part of Germany).

Makes sense, considering colony.

Are Saskia and Roos popular names currently? I read a book where the girls name was Saskia, but it was set in the 1970s.

They're common, yes.

Oo, names! Are these new for Dutch? I've always thought the lessons could use some generic names since so many sentences work much better with specific people.
