Classic Boy Names with Polish Translations - Which ones do you like?
Hi, we are expecting our first child, a son, this October and have a short list of strong, classic boys names. They need to have a Polish translation so typically they tend to be saints names. Which one is your favorite and any others that may fall into this list that I have overlooked?
Henry "Hank" (Henryk)
Andrew "Drew" (Andrzej)
Matthew "Matt" (Mateusz)

Henry "Hank" (Henryk) - I like Henry and Henryk, but I'm not so keen on Hank.
Andrew "Drew" (Andrzej) - Again, like the names but not so keen on the nickname.
James (Jasu) - Like James, but Jasu sounds a bit like Jason missing the 'n' to me.
Matthew "Matt" (Mateusz) - I really like Mateusz, in fact even moreso than Matthew. This would be my pick.
How often would you be using the Polish name?
Only other Polish name I can think of is Tadeusz (I think it's spelt like this, something close to it anyway) - I had a half-Polish flatmate a couple of years ago and this was his middle name. I believe it's a variant of Thomas, though I could be wrong on that, I'm not that clued up on Polish boys' names, I'm afraid.
