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?
Agata (meh, maybe. I think I prefer the more English Agnes and Agatha, personally)
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!)
Lilija/Liljana (Lilia; Liliana)
Any Polish names you find particularly usable?

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.

One of my best friends is Polish. Her name is Urszula. Her two daughters are Magdalena and Julia. My cousin married a woman of Polish descent and her name is Krystyna (Christina). Here are some other Polish names I've come across in my years of investigation.
