Which of the following names indicates nobility?

Vincent van Gogh
Jean-Claude Van Damme
Herbert von Karajan
All of the above
German 'von', when it is used as a part of a family name, it is usually a no­bil­iary par­ti­cle, like the French, Gali­cian, Spanish and Por­tuguese 'de'. In contrast to these, Dutch (or Flemish) 'van' simply means 'of', 'from' and is not an in­di­ca­tion of no­bil­i­ty.
