Get married to a Polish guy. They are the nicest guys in the world. Do not marry an American. They suck.

There`s nothing wrong with your name. And if you`re going to marry a Polish guy then you`re going to take his name anyway - so what`s the point in changing your name now ?

What does this have to do with her hanging her name ?

But why should she do that before she`s going to be 18 ?

I am assuming you mean hate, I posted it because I really cant be bothered starting my own and assumed you would be responding and also as this was such a shit post I thought I'd give it a bit of umph!

But why should she do that before she`s going to be 18 ?

you can change your name by depoll - you can do this before you are 18!!!!!

I see - but as I see the terrorist attack had been prevented. We all have to calculate that such things might happen every day. This is a war.

But why should she do that before she`s going to be 18 ? Perhaps later on she`s going to come to an opinion that she dosn`t want to do it.

then she can change it back, it's less drastic than marrage

it's a bit frustrating, I travel by train every day and by air every other week so it's a pain in the arse if I have to check hand luggage in

This is a war.

oh yeah, because it's really affecting Poland isnt it?

It`s a war in which for a change we aren`t at the first front this time - but yes, we`re also affected by it. Some two years ago there have been some suspiciously looking Muslims here who were taking photos of subways, trainstations and government buildings. They were all rounded up and deported.

Besides, can you immagine what would happen to the Muslim minority here if there would be a terrorist attack on our soil ?

A wild guess would be there would be no muslim minority

Well, the Tatars were always here - right now there are only 5000 of them left. But nowdays most of this minority consists of immigrants and foreign exchange students - the which make out about 30.000 people.

A wild guess would be there would be no muslim minority

Yes - if the government wouldn`t do anything, the people would take justice into their own hands.

lol poor complexed that dummy wanting to change his lastname.

Spain people is white you moron be proud of your lastname you are complexed because of all the native americans from mexico etc are called ""hispanics""and have spanish lastnames.

Black people have english names and native americans from south america(there also is white people in south america) have spanish lastnames because the Spanish colonized south america.

Hispanic is not a race is an ethnicity and like in the u.s there are black asian and white hispanics but you find this word offensive over there because all the "hispanics" you see over there are all native americans or black not whites.

Unlike the english the spanish didnt exterminate all the native people.

The REAL Spanish are white so dont mistake the Spanish people from Spain with other races like the native american people.

Calling people from other countries like mexico etc "the spanish people" is an insult for the Spanish people because those spanish speaking people are frowned upon.

Should we call the smart americans "jamaicans" because they also speak english?

Hey complexed, actress Cameron Diaz is white,cant you tell the difference or what ?

Screw the racists
guess who

Your nationality or your last name does not determine who you are. It is your character, it is what is in your heart that does.

But......
Some people just simply don't like their names. Some people don't like the way they look, they get bored with their lives and want a change, have plastic surgeries, change their hair color, their sex etc. All this doesn't really matter much, because you live, get old and die.

"GUESS WHO" has a good point. It is what's inside and what you do with your life that counts. Some people live in a wheel-chair all their life and would give anything to walk again. They appreciate what they do have. That they're alive. Others take life for granted, are not happy with what they have and want more.

That's only human nature.

The best advice I can give you is to take pride in who you are. Your name is part of that. Do some research into Spanish history. There was a time when Spain was the most powerful country in the world. Columbus sailed to the New World under a Spanish flag. It's a proud heritage. Dont' let the ignorance of others make you ashamed of it.

polish surnames are difficult to pronounce and most of them end with ski or ska.

Not only that, when you have to sign your name it goes across the whole page. lol

nobody in Canada has pronounced my surname right, it starts with an i and ends with icz. masakra.

they even have trouble with my name Witek

they pronounce my name Why-tek

i tell them that it is pronounced vtec like the honda engine or vtec phone.

I got a very nice Polish last name when I got married . . . but my husband laughed at me when I suggested it be "-ska" not "-ski" legally. :^( Apparently English-speaking Poles in English-speaking countries just don't do that, as a rule. He said only one of his 7 sisters ever tried to go by "-ska", and it never quite stuck.

The name is "Lakowski" and of course English-speakers pronounce the "w" as "w" not "v" - my father-in-law always responds, "There are no cows here!"
