After the "set of strange names" is published, the discussion usually begins. Very often carried out in a light tone, misunderstanding why so many people by the surprising selection of names "hurts children". Is this really the case? Does the original name always cause problems for children?

One of the commenting people put it interestingly: "when I hear the strange name of a child, I already know everything about his parents."

Or maybe it would be worth looking at the subject a little broader?

Isn't it so that many names that were once considered "original" are not surprising today, after all, one can mention here: Klaudia, Sandra, Julia. Today they sound actually "familiar" to us, but several dozen years ago they were often considered "pretentious". However, someone paved the way and names "settled" in Polish reality. Today, most people consider them "normal", "ordinary."

However, is there a limit that you cannot go beyond? Who and on what basis would judge which name is too "original"?

The fact is, as evidenced by the published name registers every year, that international names come. Increasingly, parents are choosing names that are popular in the European Union and abroad. The possibility of giving such names exists since 2015. However, every parent must remember that there is a rule that says the name should not be diminutive, funny or offensive. Parents who have doubts about the choice of name can consult with the head of any Registry Office. The head of the Civil Registry Office is obliged to determine whether the name proposed by the parents meets the requirements provided for by law. A child can be given a maximum of two names.
