John Hellegers says: The material below is adapted from an e-mail I sent at Christmas 2019 to my distant cousin Desiree Hellegers, who teaches literature at Washington State University, Vancouver, WA. Her father was Andre Hellegers (1927-79). Andre was born in Holland, educated in England and Scotland, and came to the U.S after World War II to teach medicine, first at Johns Hopkins and then at Georgetown. He labored for years on the advisory panel set up by Pope John XXIII to develop a rationale for overturning the Catholic ban on contraception. But then John died and the new pope issued Humanae Vitae, which summarily shut off that line of thought. (For the basis of that decision—that if the Church confessed error, people would ask what else had been wrong—see the Rev. August Bernhard Hasler, How the Pope Became Infallible, p.170 (1981).) Andre in his frustration remarked that he had never understood why salvation is by temperature and damnation is by rubber. John Hellegers ____________________ Dear Desiree, Your father told mine on multiple occasions that the Hellegers name means The Legions of Hell. We were never sure how seriously to take that, but your father insisted he wasn’t joking. He pointed out that hell has the same meaning in Dutch as in English; that leger in Dutch means army; and that the plural of leger is legers. Later, when I was in my 30s, your father told me the same things, and I could see no sign of a spoof in his demeanor. Quite the contrary; he seemed to be totally in earnest. I’ve come across some information that seems at least consistent with your father’s account, although it’s not proof. Ancestry.com tells me that I’m not half Dutch, as I’d supposed, but only 22 percent Dutch. Another 15 percent is Scandinavian. (The largest element in my background comes principally from my mother’s side, a Scottish-English blend at 55 percent.) Most interestingly, I have a trace of Middle Eastern genes. How accurate is Ancestry.com? Accurate enough to identify as my first cousin a woman who does not share my family name. Neither of us had supplied any personal or family information at all, other than a DNA sample. We know that from the eighth through the 10th centuries the Vikings had a well-developed trade which consisted of kidnapping Eastern European children and running them down various rivers to the Middle East. The boys were castrated and sold in Muslim lands as eunuchs. The girls were sold as household servants (or perhaps worse). See H.R. Trevor-Roper, The Rise of Christian Europe, pp. 92-93 (1965). Trevor-Roper reminds us that the word for slave in all European languages comes from the same root as Slav. Internet reading on Viking adventuring discloses that a lot of the participants had been frozen out of the mating game at home. The major bulls tended to have multiple wives, leaving sparse pickings. Thus there was a strong incentive for the lower ranks to take foreign women and bring them home. The New York Times had an article on October 14, 2017 (available online) about Viking burial silks from the eighth through the 10th centuries that had the name Allah embroidered in Arabic script. One silk had the sacred name embroidered in mirror script. Numerous other articles on this point, some disputing the provenance and meaning of the script, are also available online. In the same period the Vikings were also marauding along the Dutch coast, sailing up the rivers, visiting churches and monasteries in search of treasure, stealing everything they could get their hands on and otherwise wreaking havoc. There appears to be a fair amount of literature about that. The original sources for this history, as it’s been reduced to writing, tend to be the clergy and monks who’d been robbed. They might have favored references to hell and its agents to describe the experience. So the theory that the Hellegers name means The Legions (or Armies) of Hell seems at least plausible to me. I’d be curious to know if your branch of the family also has the Middle Eastern trace in its DNA. Its absence, of course, would not be dispositive. The Dutch might equally as well have given the name to Vikings who never made it as far as the Middle East. The more significant clue would be the presence of Scandinavian DNA by itself. John
