Voorste Diesdonk



First attested as Voorste Diesdonk in 1838-1857. Derived from voorst (forwardmost) and a compound toponym composed of an unclear first element (perhaps related to dialectal dies (fog, mist)) and donk (sandy hill protruding above a swamp). The element voorst was added to distinguish the settlement from Achterste Diesdonk.
