Jarek

by Lemonjello Redenbacher on May 3, 2011

You might as well name him Derek or Jared, because “Jarek” will be confused for one or the other of these names, 100% of the time, for the rest of his fucking life.

This is a polish name that you are mispronouncing, it’s said ya-rek. It is still possible for people to give their children names that are from their heritage. Possible we should learn to pronounce them.

Or, better yet, name your kids things that people KNOW how to fucking pronounce. How about that one?

Gerald… I’ve known a handful of Jareks, and not one of them was Polish, and not one of them pronounced it ya-rek. Same goes for the recent surge in Irish names. A name might have a history in a foreign country, but the American twats that choose these names are not honoring their own heritage, and they don’t know how it should be pronounced. Most of time they can’t even spell it right.

Noone names his/hers child Jarek in Poland. It’s a fucking diminutive! We, unlike Americans, expect our children to grow up one day. The correct form is JarosÅ‚aw. Don’t bother trying to pronounce it.

Whoa – hold on a minute before you start painting all Americans with one big brush. I’m American and I started this site, after all.
