Personal experiences with the name Minka: | Edit

My husband's last nme is Wozniak so when we were looking for a name for our daughter we needed something that could hold it's own against a very strong Polish last name.

Meanings and history of the name Minka: | Edit

We read that it was a traditional Polish nickname for Wilhelmina, but I haven't been able to verify that anywhere else.

The wikipedia entry for Wilhelmina lists Minka as a Czech, Slovakian, and Polish variant of the name. Wikipedia isn't always necessarily right, but combined with a handful of online anecdotes I've seen from people knowing old Polish ladies with the name, this origin is at least believable.
