Dziwaczne Odkrycia: Every Polish Girls Name Ends in Letter A!!

“Jak masz na imie?” – me, once I learnt some Polish.

Dziwaczne Odkrycia: Every Polish Girls Name Ends in Letter A!!

My friend Ania and I in Krakow together.

Polish names have long time fascinated me. You can spot a Polish name a mile off in a list of names when you travel. Here’s a list of random tourists on a trip. You can tell who the Polish are immediately. The other names have no clear nationality. You get it. Amazing.

Gordon Black
Maybelline Pioline
Agnieszka Malinowska
Lee Jung Soon
Piotr Kowalski
Camilla Johansen
Jimmy Armstrong

So yes, Agnieszka and Piotr are 100% Polish names here. Easy to work out!!

But even better – here’s a fact and a brilliant one!

Have you ever met a Polish girl whose Christian/ First/ Given name didn’t end with the letter A (in infinite form)?

No you didn’t! Because if you did, she’s not Polish! They must end in Letter A. I first learnt this fact in 2004 when I worked with Monika, Ania, Aneta, Marta and Klaudia in Bournemouth many moons ago.

With Piotr and Grzegorz plus Zuza and Aneta in 2004 – first four Polish people I ever met!

I realised all their names ended in Letter A and I found it so intriguing and cool. Even when you shorten the name of a Polish girl, it STILL ends in A. It’s outrageous and simply brilliant! For example:

Agata – Aga
Aleksandra – Ola
Joanna – Asia
Magdalena – Magda
Weronika – Wera

Exceptions to the “all Polish girls names end in the letter A rule”?
OK so there are exceptions but they are not found in the infinitive form of the names. This happens when the words before the girls name influence the ending of the word. Here are the examples:

In English
Katarzyna
I was drinking with Katarzyna
Ola
I eat with Ola

In Polish
Katarzyna
Piłem z Katarzyny
Ola
Jem z Oli

Any men’s names ending in Letter A in Polish?

Yes there are but after some research it appeared to me that I could only find Kuba ends in A of all the male names I have seen in Poland. But even Kuba is a shortened name, the full name is Jakub. I also thought of Arka for Arkadiusz, but it appears Arek is the shortened name.

It’s a fascinating fact, I really love it.
