New Royal Baby Boy - Recommended Polish Baby Names

I think they should name the new royal child Cnut or Canute. At least recognize the Polish Heritage that goes deep into Royal History in the UK. As you may know,

Cnut was of Danish and Slavic descent. His father was Sweyn Forkbeard, King of Denmark (which gave Cnut the patronym Sweynsson, Old Norse Sveinsson). Cnut's mother was the daughter of the first duke of the Polans, Mieszko I; her name may have been Świętosława (see: Sigrid Storråda),[5][6][7] but the Oxford DNB article on Cnut states that her name is unknown.[8]

Apparently some historians feel that Canute was one of the most effective kings in Anglo Saxon History.

What are your thoughts?

Not a fan of the Royals?

The Royal family in todays form is nothing like the pillaging barbarians you refer to. Yes they may be billionaires, but they bring more to the table for the UK compared to the cost they bear. I feel they bring real value to the UK economy.

I herby object to this thread being re-classified to that of an official thread, saved from the jaws of off-topic.

Hmm... His Royal Highness Prince Zdzisław of Cambridge.

Cnut or Canute

This is more Germanic than Polish tho.

If the name was good enough for Świętosława.....

Keep in mind, the UK has a very multi-ethnic feel to it and by embracing their past Polish heritage and the present number of Poles on UK soil, it would go a long way in making the current Poles there feel welcome.

Alexandra had pretty good odds I understand if it had of been a girl (although the name is spelled incorrectly). Imagine that: Princess Ola.

What you mean as in an anagram of c*nt?

No, I prefer the name Canute. I think the child would be picked on if it was spelled the other way. Not fair to the child really.

If we have to have a Polish name then I'd go for Magdalena which would ensure that he toughens up a bit as he goes through the state education system

A married woman of childbearing age has given birth to a baby boy.

The event followed nine months of pregnancy.

"Both mother and baby are doing well," a spokesman for the woman said.

It is now expected that the baby will grow up.

Jarosław?

Great choice! It honours Poland's great senior statesman Kaczyński as well as its future PM Gowin. Of course, one could also go with Sobieski. Sobieski Windsor has an interesting ring to it, doesn't it?

Or he could be called Karol, as that is apparently a boy's name.

As far as I know, Sobieski is not a first name, even you should know that.
Secondly you do not understand irony. Jarosław was intended as sarcasm. We should not shock the British people.

Interesting to see you already know btw who will be the new Polish prime minister before elections are held.
