Hi everyone

I was wondering if someone could help me, I was watching a clip of EastEnders and man mentions his Polish name in the clip

bbc.co.uk/programmes/p007g0c2

but I cannot find the spelling its at 1 minute and 20 seconds.

Thanks
Kelvin

Would gladly help but the video isn't working on Android devices nor playstation :)

Sorry I should have mentioned it only works on Desktop or Laptop.

Or wait the clip is on YouTube as well.

Sounds like Włodzisław or something very similar.

Would Włodzisław be a last name or first name?

AFAIK it's a first name, maybe not too common.

It sounds like "Woldow". It's definitely not Polish name nor surname so most likely producers didn't do their homework. Sounds like Russian surname. In fact that actor doesn't even look Polish to me.

I hear "Woldoch" /voldokh/ being a family name. There are Polish names of "Wałdoch" /valdokh/ so it's the nearest possible shot.

The actor does claim to speak some Polish

He's just a Canadian with some accent skills :)

I hear "Woldoch"

That's what it sounds like to me too.

Pretending to be a Pole, in my guess, he was trying to say "Waldek" but instead he said "Woldach".
Name Waldek, is a short version of Waldemar, Polish first name.
