Personal name as base
quickinfo

Within the field of nominal suffixation, only a few suffixes may be attached to personal names. The suffixes -iaan and -man denote followers of a certain person, although the latter is mainly used in negative contexts. An associative meaning is found in -en-dy and its variant -en-har, in that they refer to the people that are in a close relationship with a person. These suffixes are also special since they can be interpreted as the result of univerbation.
