The same like in English - Maria, but pronounced differently.
Nicknames: Marysia, Maryśka, Mania, Mańka, sometimes used Mariola

Poish ladies with this name have had to change the spelling over the generations. Before WWI one could encounter Marya. Before WW2 it was often spelt Marja, and after the war ti becmae Maria. Maryja is reserved solely for the BVM.

No. Marynia is a diminutive of Maryna which is a dfferent name , of probably the same origin though.

That is what I've mentioned above, often person named Maria would prefer to be called by a nickname like Mariola- is it more clear now???

Many girls (in Poland) named Maria would accually prefer to be called Mariola or by any other nationally known nicknames, which relates to Maria name (in Poland) . The name Maria in Poland is known to have a lots of nicknames and lots of demunitives as well.

marihuana

Yeah, hehehe... marihuana is called Maryśka (in Polish) which is demunitive of Maria.

Nominative: Mariola, Maria, Maryśka etc...
Vocative (optional though!): Mariolu!, Mario!, Maryśko!...

Apropos the 'MariA'/'MariO' form, I'd guess to avoid confusion, if an Italian male named appropriately enough 'Mario' (NOT 'Maria', naturally!!) were living in Poland, his name would be Polonized quickly to 'Marek' (Italian 'Marco') and thereafter dubbed 'Marku!' in the Vocative, again for clarity's sake, most likely LOL

I don;t know what you mean but for sure I can tell you that:
- Italian Mario in Polish is Mariusz
- Italian Marco is Marek in Polish

Apropos the 'MariA'/'MariO' form,

Polish natives won't have a doubt why it happened that in some cases we address a girl by Mario instead of Maria - it's all about Polish grammar!

"It's all Polish grammar.."

..meaning, it's second nature to a native Polish speaker.
:-)

'Mariusz' is also a familiar first name, having an equivalent in other languages too, such as German and Swedish 'Marius'.

Wonder if 'Marina' is a Russian variant of Polish 'Maria', 'Maryśka' cf. Hungarian 'Marika' etc...

There is also Martyna. But it's another name.
Lyzko    
15 May 2010  #15
'Martyna' (Martina) would then be the female form of 'Marcin' (Martin), yes?

Worth to note: Marian.
This is a male name.

Enkidu, you have just shown Lyzko's point on the other thread. It's 'worth noting'. Marian is indeed a man's name as I teach one.

I find it rather funny. I mean - the typical Marians are usually middle-aged men with moustache.
On the other hand - Maid Marian (you know Robin Hood's girlfriend). :-)

BTW - Real name of John Wayne is Marion Robert Morrison.

Because it ends with a consonant, not -a.

What about Kuba? It's certainly a man's name.
plk123 8 | 4,161

but it is feminine. :D

'Marjan' is also a common man's name in Croatia:-)

Nah. For at least a decade it's a name on it's own rights.

Yeah but not on any birth certificate. The proper name is Jakub.

No, it doesn't happen often and it's completely irrelevant. The question was about the name Maria and not nicknames. You could as well say that some women whose first name is Katarzyna prefer to be called księżniczka.

Maria is also called Marijka and that's quiet nice form of Maria
My lass she likes to be called Marijka.

And interestingly enough, gang, "Marijke" (with a final "e" however) is Dutch, "Marika", Hungarian.
