Why do people in Poland give their children foreign names?

Once dominated by traditional Polish names deeply rooted in Slavic culture and history, parents in Poland are increasingly looking beyond borders for unique and meaningful names for their newborns. This shift mirrors broader societal changes as Poland becomes more integrated into the global community.


English as the modern lingua franca

One of the most notable influences on foreign-origin names in Poland is the English language. With English being the lingua franca of the modern world, names like James, Rose, and Victoria have gained popularity among Polish parents. These names are not only aesthetically pleasing but also carry a sense of international flair, appealing to parents seeking a cosmopolitan identity for their offspring.


Cosmopolitan charm

In addition to English names, Polish parents are exploring names from other European languages such as French, Spanish, Italian, or Russian. Names like Vincent, Bruno, or Nadia are becoming more common, adding a touch of continental elegance to the Polish naming. These names often evoke images of romance and sophistication, which make them resonate with parents who value cultural diversity.
