Nice names!

Is Franciska because the Pope? Here some people named their children "Francisco" because him.

Shoegazing Leo

Franciska (Francisca in portuguese) is not common here. Francisco is common. These names have nicknames: Fran or Chico/Chica (more common) in Brazil. Brazil has a tradition to give short nicknames for some names:
- Nando/Nanda or Fer for Fernando/Fernanda
- Dani for Daniel, Daniele, Daniela and another forms
- Zé for José (Joseph)
And so on.

Panka is something special with Pongo...
But we can't be quite sure.

No connection with the pope, we just happened to both like this name.

Panka is indeed has the best rhythm from these choices. My only concern with his name is that in Hungarian if a word ends with -ka or -ke that means small. So not sure it is a proper name for an adult. It is actually a nickname version of Panna, which is a nickname version of Anna. But sounds great :)
Almost everyone has shorter nicknames here, which is usually ending with -ka/-ke or -i. If we take my family:

Andrea-> Andi
Péter -> Peti
Barnabás -> Barni
Richárd -> Ricsi
Róbert -> Robi
Márton -> Marci
Marianne -> Manka (my mother)


Olivia: In Hungarian family name comes first, followed by the "first" name. We have chosen to relay both my and my wife's family name to our kids, so that would read Ács-Pongó Olivia. The double O is too strange to pronounce :)

Karina may be global but very rare in Hungary :)

What about Dalma or Gianinna? :)

Zak family's names in portuguese and related nicks:


Andréa/Andreia if it's female or André if male -> Andi/Andy/Déia or Deco (male)

Pedro -> sometimes is Pê
Barnabé -> Barney (it's not common this name)
Ricardo -> Rick, Rico and rarely Cardo.
Roberto -> BetoMartin/Martim -> not common nickname
Mariana/Mariane -> Mari/Nane/Nana


When it's small, you can use -inho (man) or -inha (woman) in the end, but in some cases, the last letter will be supressed or adapted: i.e: Riquinho, Betinho, Marizinha.

I keep hoping that mankind will come to its senses and stop killing the earth.
But I think we have a better chance of colonising an other planet....
Just hope for the best and prepare my kids as well as possible to do there part.
