    Being Belgian myself I have to agree with the comments below Weert and huizen both have very hard to render sounds and only a sound file would do the name

      would do the name justice when pronounced the proper way in Flemish or Dutch

      no way, mate!

      Can I send you a private mail with a sound file attached?
      Which kind of format would you prefer?
      Do you have PureVoice maybe? That makes rather small files.

      The fact that there is no space before the W may point towards a Belgian
      ancestorship, instead of a Dutch one.
