You would need to ask at the Polish embassy in the US.
Why did YOU not think before you put pen to paper????

Bc when a baby born in poland, they give you a week or two to put the name, that's what i was told..

i asked because u said one might have a couple of weeks to sort out a name. i thought baby might be under two weeks. i can see that i was wrong.

not these days, but you are limited by the knowledge of the authorities.

I know two people, both born in Poland, whose names are Armand and Margot. French names, Polish people. Does this answer your question?

Merged: Legally Changed My Name in the United States-Does it Apply in Poland?

I was born in Poland but moved here when I was very little. I legally changed my name in the United States from "Jagoda" to "Joanna" and am wondering if in Poland am I legally still Jagoda or if the name change applies there.

I hope to visit Poland soon and even take Polish language Summer classes at Jagiellonian university to brush up at my Polish. So this is why I'm asking.

You can always change your name back to what it was in the United States if you're not happy with it.

"Jagoda" to "Joanna"

Im so sad to read this.
Jagoda is such a beautiful and original name! What a shame.
