This has appeared on the News24 website: it illustrates a popular naming practice among (white, Afrikaans-speaking) South Africans.

Take the names Suzette and Christiaan. Combine them and you'll get the name of a baby daughter called Chrizette.

This is what the daughter of singer Jurie Els and South Africa's high jump queen, Hestrie Cloete, will be called.

An excited Cloete said: "Jurie's first name is Christiaan and my second name is Suzette. I combined the names and our daughter will be called Chrizette.

"We haven't heard this name before. We'll have to see if she's going to be the only one in South Africa with this name."

Cloete is now 21 weeks pregnant and is scheduled to give birth to the couple's first-born in October.
