-en-har
quickinfo

Frisian has a suffix -en-har that is attached to personal names, or nouns functioning in that way, like domenyminister. Deriving plural nouns, it has an associative function in that it denotes all the persons closely connected to the person referred to by the name. Thus Nauta-en-har refers to the set of people closely related to mr. Nauta. The suffix can be considered the result of univerbation of the conjunction enand plus a pronoun harthem.
