I was born in 1959 in a street called “Achterom”. Achterom means “Back entrance”. It is possible that the name “Achterom” was written towards the end of the 17th Century. An explanation would be that the shape of the canal. It has the form that the canal is behind something. It’s the only canal in Delft that has two turns in it.
