    OMGoodness, Polish names!

    Am I the only one with a slight (okay, huge?) obsession with Polish names? I'm not Polish in the slightest bit, and am about 95% sure I should never burden my child with a Polish name (it's all those "Z"s and "J"s and "Y"s! It's why I love them, but also why I don't know how usable they are...). But I still love them to death. Anyone here know Polish names?

    These are some I've developed crushes on over the years--any you'd add to this list?

    Adela
    Agata (meh, maybe. I think I prefer the more English Agnes and Agatha, personally)
    Ariadna
    Emilia
    Ewa (with names like Ewa, Klara, Wioletta, Waleria, and Silwia/Sylwia, I think it's just better to stick to the more international Sylvia, Clara, Violetta, Valeria, and Eva. Still, I find Ewa so charming!)
    Gracja (GRAHS-ya)
    Grazyna (grah-ZHEE-nah)
    Jozefina (yo-seh-fee-nah)
    Kaja (KIE-ah)
    Klara
    Lilija/Liljana (Lilia; Liliana)
    Lucja
    Sabina
    Serafina
    Silwia/Sylwia
    Sybilla
    Waleria
    Wioletta
    Zenobia
    Zofia
    Zoja (ZOY-ah)
    Zosia
    Zuzanna

    Any Polish names you find particularly usable?

    Thanks, Berries!

    The names are lovely, but the spellings will be confusing for Americans. I came across the Polish name Cymburgis (possibly only used by the mother of a Holy Roman Emporer). Not sure what it means, but It's intriguing.

    I'm smart and totally noticed this was in the girls section -facepalm-

    I think Adela and Sybilla are lovely! I have Sybella on my list.
