Hello,
This is my first post on the website. I have a quick question, how do you spell the female name (I’ll sound it out) oolana or ulanna? I’m not even sure if I am pronouncing it correctly.

Thank you
PS- Polish girls are the most beautiful in the world.

Is this a joke? Ul. Anna :-)

Anyway if not, just ask her her name!

When I first heard, in a Polish language course, something like Nazywam się Anna Nowak, I was sure it was Annina or Annyna...
For geminate (?) consonant users like Finns or Italians, Polish double consonants are difficult.

Italians say the name ANNA in just the same way as Polish.
It's not that difficult anyway.

Well the "Anna Nowak" I heard in one course, and to a lesser extent the "Anna Borowska" I heard in another, are definitely not as in Italian.

oolana or ulanna

Maybe it was Joanna? There's nothing like ulanna in Polish (but 'ulana', which may mean completely drunk ;-) ).

Hello all,
Thank you so much for all of your responses. My question did not have to do with an actual Polish person. It is quite a complicated situation. All of the information you gave me was very helpful. I will get back to you with my results. And by the way, I have been all over Poland and received the warmest treatment by all that I met. You have a beautiful country with a very rich history.

Ulana

My work colleague's name is Ulana. A very rare female name indeed.
