American, but my mother's side of the family is Polish, while my dad is a mix of Irish/Scottish/Native American/Misc. I identify most with my Polish side, so I'll answer with the Polish versions of some of our top names.
Elzbieta (Elizabeth, although I'm not really fond of Elzbieta. I prefer the Russian Elizaveta.)
Casimir (No English equivalent; I've just always liked it)
Heh, if I actually tried to use some of those in America, I have a feeling most would think I'm just spelling things creatively! Either that, or be hopelessly confused how to pronounce them. (I'm not even certain on some of the pronouniations.)
We want four children, ideally two boys and two girls which we plan to name William, Alexander, Catherine, and Elizabeth, but if I had to give them Polish names, I'd probably go for Aleksander, Katarzyna, Dominik, and Anastazja (or maybe Wiktoria, since I don't like Elzbieta and I don't know the Polish verion of William, if there even is one.
