Why delfijn?

My surname "van den Eijnde" is fine, really, but not suitable as a domain name. It doesn't sound right and is miss-spelled all the time, with "Ey", "Ei" or ending in "n" instead of "e". I prefer the Spanish version: doesn't "del Fin" sound better? Or rather "delfijn", otherwise it would mean "The End". The diphthong "ij" has a typical Dutch ring to it, wouldn't you agree? The association with dolphin is a nice bonus: for dolphins are intelligent, peaceful and playful. Just like me :-)
