Nice way to say the name?

I know that in Polish, there are different ways to speak ones name to them. A slight variation to imply a dear friend perhaps? For instance, Marzena could be said Marzenka, correct?

What about Malgorzata? How to sweeten that up? :)

What about Gosia? :)

Can you help me please?

Gosia, Gosiunia, Gosiuńka, Gosiaczek, Małgosia

Marzenka is correct. Can't think of any other, sweet variation of the name.

Some also say Gośka, but to me that doesn't sound nice, just like Kryśka, Zośka, Wieśka, Kaśka. Sounds like someone is yelling and mad at you.

I heard Madzia being used for Magdalena.

I'm pretty sure most Poles think that way.
I'd never say that Madzia is a form of Magda/Magdalena.

Chill out, perhaps not... Magdzia would have been a much better choice.
Nonetheless, it is used by Poles and who are you to argue that? Huh? :)

I am not arguing. You are.
I'm stating facts, so try your own medicine and chill out yourself.

Magdzia would have been as good as Madga as diminutives for Magdalena. They would be very rarely used for Malgorzata.

So let's check the Great Book of First Names (Słownik Encyklopedyczny. Wielka księga imion, Wydawnictwo Europa)

Magda:
ZDROBNIENIA (diminutives): Macha, Mada, Madzia, Magda, Magdalenka, Magdusia, Magduszka, Magdzia, Lena. INNE FORMY: Madlena, Magda, Maria, Marlena.

Malgorzata:
ZDROBNIENIA (diminutives): Gocha, Gosia, Gośka, Macha, Machna, Mana, Małgorzatka, Małgosia, Małgoś, Małgośka, Masza, Maszka. INNE FORMY: Margareta, Margot, Maneta, Greta.

Edward, I can assure you. You ask a question on PF, you get answers and arguments!
And that's the beauty of PF.

I think this girl may not spell so well? Can you tell me what this means....

"mam nadzieję że wyspałeś się ....wczorajsza nocna rozmowa była bardzo miła :)"

I translated it all except the one word to

"I hope that the wyspałeś .... yesterday night was a very nice conversation :)"

I am lost on that word.

Actually you can have 4 people agreeing and arguing at the same time.

She didn't like it when I called her Goska (oops!)

But she did like it when I called her Malgorzatka :)

Try Gosienka.

I think this is an endearing term.

It means "did you sleep well?".

"mam nadzieję że wyspałeś się

I hope you got enough sleep

wyspać się - get enough of sleep

Yep. It's amazing how it can be done.
