  1. Thanks for this! #15, woot! We’re naming our baby Hector and he will be born to a Polish father (myself) and a Mexican mother. The name has more common use in the Latin-American countries and I personalyl love the mythological symbolism of honor it has but it was difficult to find much info on the name in Poland. Glad to see that there is at least ONE out there, haha. Peace!
