Name of daughter[edit]

In the book I am currently reading Boerhaave's daughter is called "Johanna Maria". In the article it is "Maria Joanna". I can understand the removal of the 'h' in three centuries and from Dutch to English, but I don't understand why the names are reversed. Does anyone know whether it's Jo(h)anna Maria or Maria Jo(h)anna? Stefan Kruithof 19:08, 10 October 2007 (UTC)

The testament of her father lists the name "Johanna Maria Boerhaave" https://www.ntvg.nl/system/files/publications/1956109190001a.pdf Brienanni (talk) 18:33, 24 August 2016 (UTC)

Review for History of Modern Medicine[edit]

Nice job on the article! Just a few comments: - The first paragraph has a few long sentences. I think it would be more understandable if the sentences were split into multiple shorter ones. - Explain what the doctrines of Epicurus, Thomas Hobbes, and Spinoza in the first paragraph of the biography - Say what illness he died from - Great explanation on the hydraulic theory! - I think the transitions from one paragraph to the other on the same section could use some work to flow a bit better.
