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.

I thought it was as stated in the first post, too. Oopsie. :)

Thanks, I have a vision problem and did not notice the "ł" in Michał until now.
That explains a lot.  :laugh:

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

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
