When I first read about Anne Frank's diary, I thougt that Miep and Bep were hillarious names, even though I am German. But I have finished the book, and I think it is a cool nickname now.
Seems cute for a little Dutch girl, say under the age of 10, but would easily be mispronounced as MY-ep in America. Also, the correct pronunciation would probably get some snickers (meep, meep! is the sound the roadrunner in the cartoons makes.)
Miep Gies died on January 11, 2010 at the age of 100.
Ok. It's kind of strange if your child is named after a sound. Imagine the teacher calling roll call. Meep? Meep? Meeeeeeep? One of the strangest names in the bunch in my opinion.
Pronounced MEEP. [noted -ed]
Miep was the name of a woman who helped Anne Frank and her family when they were in hiding. She was also the one to give Anne's diaries to Otto Frank after the war.
