This isn't creepy sounding at all?
Is it also possible to translate følge to "accompany"?
I'm not really sure about the suffix of these words - Barnet and Barna , the sound I mean - It seems to be exactly alike!
If you are english speaking, think about the phonetic english alphabet. I think of the suffix of "barna" as as the phonetic "u" and the suffix of "barnet" as the phonetic "i"
