Since the Frisian language was acknowledged, all entrance signs on public roads got, next to the Dutch name of the village/town, a Frisian adding.
It can be rather confusing but just prepare yourself well before you travel.

At first, after the change to language, some signs only showed the Frisian name, but when this turned out to be too confusing, they added the Dutch name as well.
