    Grazyna

    Hi out there,

    The other day, I came across information on the Polish female christian name of Grazyna reading some book, whose tittle I have now forgotten. I merely can remember that its place of origin is Lithuania- wherefrom it came to the Polish language-, and that the name has some deeper meaning, but which one?

    Is there anyone nice to help me out there?

    Thanks in advance.
    I think, therefore I am.

    I don't speak Polish, but I do speak Googlese:
    GRAZYNA (Grażyna): Polish name of Lithuanian origin, meaning "beautiful."

    Additionally, a few names of Lithuanian origin, such as Olgierd (Algirdas), Witold (Vytautas) or Grażyna are also quite popular in Poland.

    Means "beautiful" in Lithuanian. This name was created by Polish poet Adam Mickiewicz for his poem 'Grażyna'.
