How do you say Michał Kalina?
« on: August 22, 2013, 07:50:48 PM »
The slash in the "l" is throwing me off.

Is it Mike-AL KAH-Lee-NAH ?

"ł" describes the sound of English "w"

Last name is OK.

Thanks, I have a vision problem and did not notice the "ł" in Michał until now.
That explains a lot.  :laugh:
The memory of God should be treasured in our hearts like the precious pearl mentioned in the Holy Gospel. Our life's goal should be to nurture and contemplate God always within, and never let it depart, for this steadfastness will drive demons away from us. - Paraphrased from St. Philotheus of Sinai

I was expecting some more colorful answers.

Interesting.  What does the "a" ending mean in Polish or Byelorussian?

1st.

In last name - nothing.

Awesome!  :)

You'd be Mihai Călin in Romanian... Your surname is also a common first name around here.

And in Greek, Μιχαήλ Δαφνής (mi-kha-EEl da-fnEEs), also a common surname here, or (more specifically) Μιχαήλ Βακκίνος (mi-kha-EEl va-kEE-nos) since the plant Viburnum is Βακκίνιον (va-kEE-nee-on) in Greek. I'm pretty sure I went to the same school with a Βακκίνος guy in my early school years
