Names in list[edit]

Note: Not everyone with "Van" or some variation of is necessarily of Dutch origin. Please have a source available before adding to the list. -- Mattinbgn/ talk 14:11, 10 June 2007 (UTC)

term "Dutch Australian"[edit]

there is a {{cn}} tag in the first sentence for the actual term. I dont think the definition of the term shouldnt need a source, as common sense explains it (of course a source for the definition would be lovely all the same). Here is academic output that uses the term [1] John Vandenberg 00:00, 11 June 2007 (UTC)

  • The term "Dutch Australian" isn't used commonly in Australia. The majority of the sources refer to the "Dutch in Australia". If "Dutch Australian" is used as a term, it is usually used to denote a joint Australian and Dutch connection eg. Dutch Australian Association. The source tag was introduced to show that the term is not accepted as a notable use of the term. Assize 06:05, 11 June 2007 (UTC)
    • I do not agree; it is the most common term used to describe Australians of Dutch heritage. See books and academic output that mentions "Dutch Australian" and specifically "Dutch-Australian immigrants". John Vandenberg 06:17, 11 June 2007 (UTC)
      • The Macquarie Australian Dictionary doesn't include it as a term (the only similar term is Anglo-Australian), so Macquarie doesn't consider it in general usage in Australia. I guess we will have to just differ on this. Assize 12:00, 15 June 2007 (UTC)

As per Wikipedia:WikiProject Demographics of Australia/Booian Australian importance more than 100,000 Australian residents declared their ancestry on the 2006 Australian census as being Dutch hence this article's rating as Demographics-importance = high--Matilda talk 00:38, 3 June 2008 (UTC)
