    In de film heet ie toch echt Gabriel. Ik kan me wel es vergissen, maar zo erg toch ook niet.

    In het echt was eht ook Grabriel, tenminste in de andere legendes.

    Het originele BOEK rept idd over de Nederlandse vampierjager ABRAHAM van Helsing......in de film hebben ze er om de een of andere reden GABRIEL van Helsing van gemaakt [face_plain]

    ---------------------------------
    The name


    ?Bram? was a shortened form of ?Abraham,? a name Stoker shared with his father. That he selected this name for one of his leading characters suggests a degree of identification with that fictional person. ?Abraham? also has biblical resonance, echoing the name of the patriarch and leader of the ancient Israelites.



    As for the surname ?Van Helsing,? a number of possibilities have been suggested. It may derive from Dr Hesselius, the fictional narrator of Sheridan Le Fanu?s famous vampire tale ?Carmilla? (1872). Given Stoker?s familiarity with Shakespearean plays as manager of the Lyceum Theatre, the origin is possibly ?Helsingor,? the Danish name for Hamlet?s famous castle. A third consideration is Van Helmont, an ancient alchemist mentioned briefly in T J Pettigrew?s On Superstitions Connected with the History and Nature of Medicine and Surgery (1844), one of Stoker?s known source-texts for Dracula.

    CC is correct. I stoor me nog steeds dood over hoe ze hem zomaar een andere naam hebben gegeven. [face_plain] Wie denken die Hollywood eikels wel dat ze zijn?
