Common Polish names…Have you ever wondered why some parents would battle over a name for their baby? That could be very sad and sometimes can cause a rift between the two parties. Parents usually have a more special attachment to the names they give to their baby because they believe that a good name follows the child.

In Poland, there are more than 400,000 last names as well as thousands of first names. Common Polish names are usually two: the first name called the “imię” and the last name or family name called the “nazwisko”.

Traditionally, Polish names are usually Christian names from the bible or a saint name with Slavic or pre-Christian origin. These names carry deeper meanings.
