My heritage is Dutch from the Netherlands. I was named after my grandmother Rigtje. When I look up name meanings Richard means "strong ruler". When I look up Rigtje it has the same meaning. It is the Dutch feminine equivalent of Richard. It is much harder to pronounce unless you are Dutch. It has the same raspy sch sound like Scheveningen using the letters igt. My father was known as Kees although his legal name was not that. My brother-in-law is also named Kees (pronounced Case) and immigrating to Canada changed it to Keith. Your records don't show any males using the name Kees although in the 1920's to 1940's it was a common male name. You only show it as female and nothing else. I guess times change.
