    inspired by honnepon & opheliaflora.

    To pick your surname, please roll the dice:

    #1. Extremely common surnames (from 60.000 to 200.000 citizens wearing one of those): Nowak; Kowalski (Kowalska is feminine form); Wiśniewski (Wiśniewska is f); Kowalczyk; Kamiński (again, change -i for -a for feminine form); Lewandowski (-a); Zieliński (-a); Mazur.

    #2. Very common surnames (from 30.000 to 60.000 people): Krawczyk; Jankowski (-a); Grabowski (-a); Majewski (-a); Król; Adamczyk.

    #3. Common surnames (average): Kubiak; Konieczny (change -y for -a for feminine form); Mazurek; Sawicki (-a); Sikorski (-a); Przybysz; Wójcik.

    #4. Still common, but less: Marzec, Małek; Chmiel; Osiński (-a); Zych; Bednarz; Kasprzyk; Czerwiec.

    #5. Animal-derived surnames: Lis; Zając; Wróbel; Dudek; Zięba; Kruk; Lew; Bocian; Czajka; Koza.

    #6. Very odd (up to 500 people actually wear this surname): Klyzna; Jaros; Welka; Buchardt; Zejma; Ostyk; Maza; Baliszyn; Gawlik.

    *please note that only surnames that have (-a) written next to them have feminine form. not all the surnames have m/f forms (eg. if you pick Mazur, it's both m/f).


    Now choose the names for yourself and your husband:
    You and DH (first and middle names): http://nameberry.com/userlist/view/57084


    Now it's time to meet your kids.
    a) Roll the dice to indicate the number of kids you have.
    *If you live near the water (seaside, lake or river) add 1 to the number of children you already have.
    *If you live in the mountains, add 3 to the number you have.
    *If you live in the city (Torun or Warsaw) add one child. Two of your children are twins (your choice which ones).

    b) Roll the dice to find out the gender: 1,3,5 - it's a boy! 2,4,6 - it's a girl!
    c) Then roll the dice for each child's first name (choose from the namebank) and after roll again for the middle name.
