Coevorden, Provincie Drenthe

Coevorden, Oxford and Bosporus all locations bear names that signify the same thing, literally : cattle passage.

Coevorden is located in the sparsely populated province of Drenthe where Nedersaksisch (Dutch Low Saxon) - a dialect spoken in Denmark and North Germany - is still understood.

George VanCoevorden an English captain with Drenthse roots gave his name to Vancouver while exploring British Columbia.
