Of course Ela! Thanks...
That would work for me and names are now sorted!
Seb or Beth, and Sebek or Ela
(at least for next few weeks until I change my mind again... Originally girls name was going to be Daisy till I decided it was too 'cute' for an adult which she would eventually become!!!)

I really like Elzbieta left as is. My friend Elzbieta also goes by Elli.

I would normally ask my mum but we want our baby name to be a surprise when announced - not up for discussion beforehand!

Boys names are sorted - Sebastian which can be shortened to Seb by English family and Sebek by my Polish side.

Girls is a little harder - currently favouring Elizabeth/Beth which I know is Elzbieta in Polish. I know most names can be shortened/softened but for the life can't think of what the 'soft' version of Elzbieta is, can anyone help me out?

I don't think I'd like to use Elzbieta - it sounds a bit too formal, but if there is a softer name then I may go for it... Otherwise its back to the drawing board for a girls name!!!
