A last name with a Dutch origin. There are not very many people with this last name, somewhere around 2,000. The K is not pronounced, just like every other English word that starts with "Kn", but people still seem to mispronounce it. Teachers are usually the best at butchering its pronunciation.
My last name is Kneepkens, one of the best you can have!
