Do all female Polish names end in A?

First things first – you may have heard that Polish names for girls all end in A. It’s true! This is often because they are the feminized version of male names. This is a custom that’s common in other cultures, for example in Portuguese with Paolo and Paola.

What is the most common name in Poland?

It’s no surprise, then, that Antoni is the most popular name in Poland, and has a female derivative, Antonina. In fact, some of the most popular male Polish names cross over into the female list, for example:

  1. Gabriel becomes Gabriela, meaning ‘God is my strength.’
  2. Igor becomes Iga, meaning ‘warrior.’
  3. Wiktor becomes Wiktoria, meaning ‘one who conquers.’

What is the most popular girl name in Poland?

Straight away, we can see many similarities between female Polish names and English variants, making these an unusual variant and unique choice for your daughter. In fact, the most common Polish girl names are close ‘cognates’ with English variants, such as:

  1. Julia
    We can see that Julia has the same spelling as the English variant, but in Polish the J is pronounced like a Y. Julia means ‘youthful.’

  2. Zuzanna
    Without a diacritic, Zs are pronounced the same in Polish as they are in English – so we have the Polish variant of Susanna. There are also Hebrew variants such as Shoshana. This biblical name means ‘lily.’

  3. Zofia
    Akin to the English Sofia, this means ‘wisdom’ and has a similar pronunciation to Zuzanna.

  4. Hanna
    Though missing the final H due to Polish naming customs, this one is very similar, and means ‘full of grace.’

  5. Maja
    Just as J becomes Y in Polish, we see Maya spelt Maja. This means ‘splendid’ or ‘from God.’

  6. Oliwia
    As with Wiktor, the letter V often becomes W in Polish, giving rise to the name Oliwia – or ‘olive tree.’

What is the rarest girl name?

If you want to avoid popular Polish girl names, you can try something a little different. Many rarer Polish girl names go against the custom of timid, beautiful imagery – instead, tending to favor masculine, war-like meanings. For example, we have:

  1. Aleska – ‘defender of mankind’
  2. Jadzia – ‘war, battle’
  3. Manina – ‘warlike’
  4. Ramona – ‘wise protection’
  5. Nelka – ‘stone.’
