Hej Sybren,

Sybren is a spelling variant of Sibren, a Frisian form of the Old German names Sigbern (victory + bear) and Sigbrand (victory + sword).

Here's a map of Friesland: http://www.famato.de/frieslandlotse/friesland.gif

Westfriesland belongs to the Netherlands, Ostfriesland belongs to Germany and Nordfriesland to Germany and Denmark.

Regards, Satu
