Ariadna Says:


Actually, it starts with Mał (pronounaced /mow/, ow as in gown) not Mal-, so the association with everything bad or evil doesn't fit.

Ariadna Says:


Too late to reply, but it's pronounced /mow-GAW-sha/ (ow as in gown) and spelled Małgosia.

abirami Says:


That's rude, frankly. You're free not to like the names but "spelled too weird" is just insulting.

MatyldaJonas Says:


it's Małgosia (mau-go-sha) not Malgosia

Lou Says:


Not attractive at all, like most names that begin with Mal-.

Catastroffy Says:


How is this pronounced?

Fair enough :) we have tons of names that are known internationally, for instance Julia, Amelia, Maja, Wiktoria, Oliwia, Emma, Lena or Emilia :) my name's Marta, and except the lack of 'h' inside, my name is easily recognizable almost anywhere. Back to Malgosia Bela - she's not really Malgosia but Małgorzata - you actually cannot legally name your child Malgosia or Zosia or Kasia in Poland - these are all pet forms. Full proper names would be Zofia (for Zosia - which is equivalent of Sophie) and Katarzyna (for Kasia - which is nothing else but Catherine). The law states only proper full names are allowed as given names. Btw I'm glad to see some Polish names (well, in the number of two) are appealing to you! :) All the best xx

Malgosia Bela is the only Malgosia I know of. The only Polish name I really like are Kasia and Zosia, maybe a couple others. Everything else is spelled too weird for me.

By the way I'm disappointed in you, Nameberry, for putting such personalized opinion containing words like 'evil' and 'witch' and pinning it onto a nice, soft, little girls nickname. It would be enough to just mention that's a nickname or pet form of Polish Małgorzata (...which is a diminutive of Margaret), wouldn't it?

senseandsensibility Says:


How come you can say it has "evil witch quality"??? That's just rude! It's not a name itself, it is only a NICKNAME for Małgorzata, which is Polish equivalent of Margaret!!! Considering that Malgorzata is a highly popular name in Poland, Małgosia is commonly heard; all I can see is my mum, whom I call that nickname, and putting aside personal connections, it's a nickname widely used for sweet little girls! It's like English Maggie or Bunny... so sad to hear such negative opinions on this sweet spunky nickname!
