Marieke Petronella Maria Theodora.
Marieke is a very old way to say "little Marie". It's kind of like -let at the end of a word in english: booklet, leaflet, piglet. But Marieke has become such a common name that nobody recognizes it like that. It has become a name on it's own.
It's pronounced as Mareeker for the english speaking people.
Great thread, very interesting to find out what our names mean!

Michelle Tracy Gosse
Michelle is french for child of god
It is of Irish and Gaelic origin, and its meaning is "warlike".
Gosse is a rather odd last name, there are not many Gosse's in the world
Recorded as Goce, Goss, Gosse, Goose, and others, this is an English surname, but of Norman French origins. It has several possible origins including a derivation from a French personal name "Gosse", itself a short form of the name "Gocelin" with the first element meaning god or good
Katherine apparently means pure
