It is possible he changed his name, though I don't see why he would do the effort of going through this procedure. In Dutch "Nys" and "Nijs" are actually pronounced the same (there is a Dutch cyclocross rider called Maarten Nijland for instance).
Is his wife really Isabelle Nys (or Nijs)? Great coincidence then! Or is she easily called after her husband (eg. just like Victoria Beckham)?
His wife: Isabelle Nijs
It's a coincidence, but they would be family when you very deep. Somewhere between now and 100 year ago the names were written differently (God knows why). It's typical for our language (Flemish or rather Dutch).
You have: Jansen, Janssen, Jansens, Janssens, ... All prenounced (almost) the same...
