'Yoeri I think your theory is wrong. Well Kees isn't even pronounced like "keys" it's more like "case", so why would it become yankees?'

O_O. You dont say potatoe as potarto, regardless of the catchy song T-T

British say pronounce it yankees, so, theres your words smushed into a mucky beverage :(

emily1991, probably because the english speakers are notorious for prouncing foreign words the way they think they "should" be pronounced rather than trying to pronounce them the proper way?

It is drived from two very very common dutch names back in the day. Jan & Kees, when the english would talk about the dutch settelement on Manna Hatta, they would say, all those Jans and Kees' up there, over time it became yankee.

Alternatively...John Bull was a character representing England in some popular political satires. 'Janke' could have been a diminuitive Dutch form of 'John', which could have been used by Dutch settlers to insult English settlers. Somewhat like calling USA people 'Sammy' as a diminuitive form of {uncle) Sam.
