This is my dad's name, he goes by Teus.

Teunis was my great-grandfather's middle name and I'd love to use it, but I don't really think it's practical in a completely English-speaking context. He would probably agree, since he Anglicized it to the unrelated Dennis before he passed it on to his own son.

I'd like to suggest that the definition for this name, and also Theunis, Ton and Teun, be changed from "diminutive" to "short form". Dutch diminutive names usually end in -je, therefore a diminutive of Antonius would be Teuntje (which actually exists and is also used as a girls name). All the others are merely shortened names derived from Antonius. [noted -ed]
