my bf has a dog called abso.. no idea what it means... if anything. sounds a bit like ASBO though, which is something different altogether.

Hi Patrycja

We've got two cats. one called Wanda (after Wanda Rutkiewicz) because she is a fantastic climber even for a cat. The other one's called Yeltsin cos he's not the brightest animal on God's Earth, is very large and has an enormous thirst..

ask him what that means

Ive asked him but he says he doesnt know the English meaning. Does it have any significance in Polish?

I had a dog called Willy once.. he used to keep running away and I was constantly walking the streets shouting "WILLY, WILLY".. got some funny looks at time.

We have two cats - one's name is Nuka and one is Szarek. My husband once had two parakeets named Czipa i Czulik - he thought it was hilarious wheneven people asked their names and since they didn't understand Polish - said oh' those are nice names. He's too bad.

my little buddy when i was growing up in poland had a polish name i think (not sure how to spell it exactly) it was pronounced 'keen-jo' i think .... still remember visiting home once and every mourning i'd wake up, open the window and see him laying outside under the window, and he'd be so uber happy when i climbed out to say good morning hehe :) every morning he'd be under that window, i miss that bugger :(
