That is the question I got from DH last night.

Ok, here are my thoughts. I would not mind if we were into our heritage, were active in the Polish branch of the Catholic church. Which we do neither.... He says I am very into my heritage. HMMMM, when? I have never heard a Polish thing from you in the almost 9 years we have been together.

And I don't know any names other than my grandfather's which is Stanislaw and no, I think that is ugly. No disrespect to my grandfather, but I don't want children making fun of him for his name. Neither Brandon nor Justin have a polish name so wouldn't it be weird to just throw one in now? I will do some research and see if there are any "normal" names that I would like.

You'll have to do a search on Polish names. What is John in Poland? Dh and I were talking about that last night, how almost every language has a John in it and how it is very popular everywhere.

Michal is neat. I tried convincing DH to use Aleksander but he didn't like the spelling. Don't worry, I'm sure this baby will have a name before he comes home!

I hope I didn't offend anyone, I didn't mean the title to be a question to you all, just to state the question DH gave me. I don't have anything against Polish names I just thought it was funny that he suggested that, given nothing else in our life is Polish!

Thanks for the site, Grace, I will check it out.

I like Nikolaus and Michael, but then those are typical names anyway.

DH told me what it was for John last night, but I forget. But first of all, he didn't want the child named John, so why Polish for John?

Because it's not exactly the same. My great grandmother was a Katherine and Caitlyn is Celtic for Katherine. The same, but not the same. KWIM? On that list, I liked Jerrik.

I printed out some lists I found and the only names I like are:

Erek, Eryk

Gerik

Michal

Though I am not thrilled with any of spellings.

I will take home to DH and let him see them.

One of the names I think was Louden, meant like "most loved" and I liked that, but I didn't care for the name. What about Irish names? They are very pretty.

He wants Polish because we are polish. I told him some of them last night and he wasn't impressed. At this point, I might not even be living with jerkface when the baby comes and I will name him myself.

Sorry but DH is a #*()*( #)#)*#*)# #)*)*#**#)#**() in my eyes today....
