    Sooooo.....

    Having thought we'd decided on a name (Lilian) we've played around with it and have decided to change it. As you all know I recently had a brain tumor removed and a side effect of that is that I lost my hearing in my left ear - that means I can't distinguish some words apart, like Ian (my name) and Lilian. Its going to cause endless problems we can see.

    So in frustration we are open to suggestions for a name. We'd prefer to be acceptable in english, but be sort of Polish sounding. Any idea?

    I have no idea what names are Polish sounding at all, but, I can offer you our girls names we had tossed around early on in the pregnancy.... but... as it turns out we're having a little boy who's being named William.

    Elyse
    Tullulah
    Madeline

    Good luck with everything anyway!

    I really like the name Isabelle or maybe Isabella? try some of the baby name websites, there are some that you can search on for names from different countries (I think if I remember rightly)

    lol if it is spelt Maja then you are likely pronouncing it wrong, it wouldn't be the same at Maya...

    My moms side of the family is polish :)

    Magdelena is such a pretty name, you could call her Maggie for short and it isn't too hard to say?

    I love to help pick out names.........
    It might help you guys to go on a name site....turn your head and have your OH say the name......

    here's a few of my fav's
    Sasha
    Misha
    Sara
    Kayla

    You may want to use names with different letters then your own name...easier to decifer.

    Thanks guys. Aneta (Amy) says that Maya would be spelled Maja in Polish but still pronounced the same as in English. Sasha and Misha are names in themself (actually Russian ones), but they are often the short form (tender) of longer names. Personally I like Misha as I'm a Russian speaker, but my OH doesn't.

    We tried the sites, but tbh some Polish names are just so damn weird like Stanislawa (pronounced Stan-is-wa-va).

    We are toying with Nahdia now, but I need to play with it for a few days to see how it feels.
