It actually has Russian origin because Duschka and Duschechka are the most popular nicknames for girl-lover. Means the same - soul. But it's not only Czech

Beautiful meanings!

Reminds me of Duschka, which is a nickname that pops up a lot in old spy novels- basically, any time the Russian love interest wants to call her British or American spy boyfriend "sweetie." I think it's adorable, and that it's a very affctionate name to give your kid, but I'm worried about what middle school bullies would do with the pronunciation ("DOUCHE-ka!?").

This is...fascinating? I certainly wouldn't go with the Czech pronunciation, though.
