To connect a town to a river is quite usual in Germany (like Frankfurt am Main) and England (Stratford upon Avon) as well.
It dates back to the times without postal codes...

Yup

I saw that also here in Italy or at least at the north part -Cassano d'Adda, were Adda is the name of the river or even Cernusco sul Naviglio,were naviglio actually is navigable canal- so strange

I know how to pronounce it, but not how to explain it to a non Dutch speaker    Wink

Just looked it up at Wikipedia, both the Dutch and Engelish version give a way of pronounciation.:
https://nl.wikipedia.org/...ki/Krimpen_aan_den_IJssel
https://en.wikipedia.org/...ki/Krimpen_aan_den_IJssel

BTW when breaking down the name, it literally means something like a town called Krimpen, which is located at the IJssel river. To be extra confusing you have two IJssel rivers in the Netherlands, namely 1 in the east which is a branch of the Rhine (and after which the IJsselmeer is named) and 1 in the west, the so called Hollandse (or Hollandsche) IJssel. Krimpen is located in the vicinity of the last one.

You see similar naming for other Dutch towns, for example Alphen aan den Rijn (Alphen at the Rhine), Guelle aan de Maas (Guella at the Meuse) and Millingen aan de Rijn (Millingen at the Rhine).

Something new I learn.  Thanks.
