Polish Pet Names For Girls.


Glubzki    
13 Jan 2011  #91
My grandfather used to call me źabka when I was a little girl. I always thought it was wonderfully sweet. Apparently my Italian-Irish husband thought so too and now calls me Glubba (because frogs go "glub-glub" in the puddles). Pet names are cute and silly and should be. I will always be a źabka and damned proud of it!

My aunt was told that her grandfather called her marushka (or something that sounds close to this). I haven't seen it in this forum yet. Any ideas about this one?

Diminutives from Marta: Maruszka, Marusza, Marucha, Maruchna, Marocha, Marsza, Marszka + many more
Diminutives from Maria: Marusia, Maruszka + some more

Maruszka is also a village in NE Poland, on the border with Belarus.

I have never come across any of the above being used as diminutives of Marta. To be honest, Marucha and Marocha sound almost obscene and I would never call them diminutives - where on earth have you heard them used?

Pet names derived from Marta - Martusia, Martunia, Marteczka, Martuchna.

As for Maria - Marysia, Marusia, Maryśka, Maruśka, Marysieńka, Marynka, Marylka, Mania, Maniusia, Marysiunia... the variations are almost endless ;-)

Where else? pl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marta_(imi%C4%99)

Do dawnych zdrobnień zaliczała się np. Marusza (wsł., od wsł. Marchwa), oraz m.in. Marocha, Marsza, Marszka, Marucha, Maruchna, Maruszka (też od innych imion na Ma-, np. od Małgorzaty)

I did not know it was a beauty contest, I thought it was a question about any name sounding like "Marushka", so I stopped at that and did not care for "Marylkas" and "Marteczkas".

Fair enough, so why did you quote a ton of diminutives which are clearly called obsolete ("do dawnych zdrobnień zaliczała się")? Within the last century or so, "Marusia" or "Maruśka" are AFAIK the only possible sources for "Marushka", and these diminutives both come from the name Maria.

What tons of diminutives? I listed altogether nine names, six of them qualifying as close approximations of "marushka": Maruszka, Marusia, Marusza, Marsza, Marszka,

[/quote]
You added to this set "Maruśka". My feeling is that the great grandfather of OP spoke some eastern Borderland dialect, hence Maruszka would be my best bet.

I am guilty of bringing the three other names that irked you: Marucha, Maruchna, Marocha. Forgive me for my little joke on the theme: "the beauty is in the eye of the beholder". Who knows "Maruchna" could have sounded as nicely and pretty as Dobrochna. Marucha? Well, we have this bad connotation with "gajowy Marucha". :-)

Maybe I'm just having a bad day. Sorry and all that - I might have been barking up a slightly wrong tree here.

Merged: Please help me pronounce Kotku

I'm brand new to the Polish language (and this forum) and have started seeing a beautiful Polish girl.

She calls me "Misiu", which I know to pronounce as "Miss You" mixed with "Me Shoe". I love her calling me it (and I am a bit like a teddy bear!)...

I looked around for nice names for her and really like little kitten / kitty which is Kotku I know, but I don't know how to pronounce it.

Could anybody write it phonetically for me so I can say it to her next time I see her?

Thanks in advance - I love that this forum exists!

Thanks to you it's active again and top of the pile. 'Kot koo' would probably be close enough for her to understand you.

my guess is ufoludek :) but I may be wrong

I suspect ufoludek too. Another possibility could be marsjanin :-)

literal translation of alien is "obcy" , but no diminutive comes to mind.

That word makes me think of the film with Sigourney Weaver ;-)

I can't think of anything else either. Kosmitek is a good one...

When I translate that online it translates to Johnny. Is that the case? Just sounds funny to call grandma johnny.

Oh and thanks for your help.
