Bernadetta

That's not a popular name at all... Popular girl names are Katarzyna (shortened to Kasia), Anna (Ania), Gabriela (Gabrysia), Paulina (Paula), Klaudia, Magdalena (Magda/ Madzia), and lots of others. Boys: Kacper, Bartosz/ Bartłomiej (Bartek), Artur, Krzysztof (Krzysiu/ Krzyś), Jakub (Kuba/ Kubuś). There's lots of them and I don't really know which ones are most popular nowadays...

Thanks Gosica! I'm just looking for a first name that could be good for a baby of Polish origin (so that it's easy to prononuce for her peers too :).

Hey while we are talking about names....is "Bohater" or "Bohatel" a Polish name? Just curious. I was playing Call of Duty 3 today, and you are a Polish tank driver named one of those 2, hard to tell sometimes.

Bohater is not a name. It's a Hero.

Most of the Polish girls I know are either called Magda or Agniezska

I dont know how to write the polish guys names, they are hard to pronounce let alone write! With polish guys we generally just give them english equivelant names. For example Tomek would be tom.

I used to know a girl called Julia, but in Polish a J sounds like a Y, so in english its Yulia. I always used to wind her up about it, think that's why she went back to Poland lol

Is Daria a popular Polish name ??
Krzysztof 2 | 973    
2 Sep 2007  #20
I don't think so, but there was a Polish actress with that name, so it wouldn't shock anybody
I heard it a few times (one Daria was my teacher at university and another is my relative's naighbour little daughter), so it happens.

A simple and common name for a boy could be Stanley, Stan, or in Polish I believe it's spelled Stas.

Ewelina

yeah i've noticed how popular that name is, i reckon six out of ten girls are either called Katarzyna or Ewelina, in fact i'm laughing just thinking about it.

My polish name, first name and middle name would be, Karol Dawid (Karl David), but i don't know about my surname i don't think there is Polish for it :)

ohh i have big sentiment to this name.

what is it your dads name or something or is that mr 40% boyfriend, hahaha.
Wyspianska    
10 Sep 2007  #25
mr 40% bf is Bartek

Dawid is ... ahh :)
tornado2007 11 | 2,278

mr 40% bf is Bartek

what is that name in English, it sounds like the name of a hooligan, no offense or anything just sounds like the name of a roughian, lol :)

Dawid must be your dad or Brother something like that or your school teacher crush :) ????
