Groen is a Dutch sounding name
Yup, it should have an umlaut above the 'o'. Dad was from Amsterdam, came to Canada in the 50's after the war and he headed west. I kept on going and am on little island out in the Pacific between the "big island" of Vancouver Island and the continent.
Nice to hear
I have been in Vancouver once, for 1 day, waiting for a next flight to LA, USA. Great city, beautiful land. I would love to go to Canada on a vacation sometime in the future.
By the way, an O with an umlaut is not Dutch at all
It's German, but if your dad's from Amsterdam, I don't think the name should have an umlaut. Anyway, never mind...
