Lucyna

I've known this friend of a friend for too long now to ask her blush

Is it loo-chee-na?

Woo Tsee Na

Loo chenna. Unless L has a line through it. I think.

MrsSchadenfreude Sun 22-Oct-17 22:47:33

Actually I think Woo Tsi Na. With short "i" like in "bit". Maybe a cross between "i" and "ee".

MrsSchadenfreude Sun 22-Oct-17 22:51:46

I think it is an "L" at the start now I think about it, rather than an "Ł" so it would be "Loo Tsi Na" with a slight stress on the middle syllable.

Sorry - I left Poland in 1990 and hardly ever speak it these days.

MrsSchadenfreude Sun 22-Oct-17 22:52:40

It is definitely not a "ch" sound in the middle, anyway.

This is my mil name. I can't pronounce it. Blush

It's Loo-tsi( i as in 'bit')-na.
MrsSchadenfreude, I think perhaps you're confusing Lucyna and Łucja? Ł is indeed pronounced like 'w'.

Yes, I was getting confused with Łucja! Then I confused myself as I remembered that they were two different names!
