Meaning of the baby name JELTJE.


JELTJE.  A feminine form of Dutch Jelle (q.v.), meaning "everlasting" or "ever-living."  Also see Jelissa, and Jeltsje.

    Rembrandt prosecuted the parties to the former suit, saying that he and his wife were richly and abundantly provided for, and yet the defendants were permitted to insinuate, on the 5th of July last, during the trial, that his wife Saskia had squandered her property in finery and ostentation.  He asked the court to fine them 128 goutguldens, 64 for his wife and 64 for himself.
    Dr. Van Loo replied that he had handed to the court a copy of the proceedings in the former defence in which Rembrandt and his lawyer Ulenburgh found the pretended libel; and it appeared that in the introduction (prœmium) of their defence Jeltje van Ulenburgh only was named, so that si quid scriptum sit resembles slander (which always the defendants expressly deny), this would concern Jeltje van Ulenburgh alone.  However, the defence offered to swear that they had had no desire to injure Rembrandt; and even if the court decided against them, eight goutguldens were enough to pay the plaintiffs, who were "no more than a painter and a painter's wife, that is, private people." (Saskia: the Wife of Rembrandt, Bolton, 1893).
