It COULD be that Djoos for example DOES have some foregin origin somewhere in the mist of time, like from the Netherlands or something like that. Djoos and his family is as far as I know, etnical swedes but so is De La Rose I assume.

Djuse looks very Swedish to me.

Dj... is pretty typical swedish "j"-sound. The "d" in dj is usually muted.
