I think maybe he's just from a strict family tradition?

But I'm English he's polish

exactly because of that. If you love him stop him from doing madness. For he would regret later. Poles are Sarmats (Slavs). Still. You English (as all Europeans) are ultimately of Sarmatian origin. But, English and many others, at one point of history, cut the continuity with their original Sarmatian culture, due to all kind of reasons. Poles didn`t. See, that is worth to be saved. Its precious. Its so precious.

You would be able to pronounce the name, seeing as he'd explain it...

There is no such tradition and I doubt if ever was. Take the Bible away from him, maybe he gets his ridicilous ideas from there.

We both are Catholic though so I doubt it's from there

What a ridiculous thing to say, maybe you should start reading it so you don't sound so ridiculous.

What if he picks a name I can't pronounce

Most proper Polish names are always shortened by a nickname that you can make up to your liking.
Like my proper name is Sir Johnathan Magic Rebel however everyone just calls me "Reb".

Name your kid Michał if that is a boy, not Michael mind you, its a silly name. More fitting for a girl. If that is a girl call her Michelle, now that is a nice name.

Michelle Kiełbasa. Classic.

Lol you're not even taking it seriously. It is a serious issue because my bf is very strict so it's important I understand and get it right for him.

Is it quite common for polish fathers to be to be so strict?

It has more to do with personality than nationality.

Because strictness is a feature of personality, not national trait.

On the other hand, if by being strict you mean being some kind of traditionalist, then nationality may have a slight impact. But there is no rule about what kind of fathers Polish men are.

It's probably personality as he has views on what food we have, what to do etc and he doesn't speak much English so I have to translate it all on my phone.

I will stop here, as my comment may be considered offensive.
