Other Origin(s):German, Slavic
Here’s a name that deserves all the high praise it gets; much like baby! Teun is a masculine name of Dutch origin. Derived from the Dutch name Antonius or the German and Slavic name Anton, Teun means “highly praiseworthy.” This distinctive choice is very popular in the Netherlands, Belgium, Indonesia, and South Africa, among other places, and has risen in popularity since the 1980s. Your little Teun might look up to famous namesakes such as photojournalist Teun Voeten, volleyball player Teun Buijis, and composer Teun Eikelboom (who goes by Tonny Eyk).
