Joos
Can anyone tell me anything about the name Joos? It's supposedly a Flemish name, and it is pronounced "JOESS," like Joe, but with a "ss" sound on the end. Thanks very much!

I assumed that it was Dutch or Flemish, but it seems there's more to it than that. Have a look here -

The Dutch pronunciation would be something like Yohss, the Hungarian, Yohsh.
