Gender: Feminine
Origin: Polish/Serbo-Croatian
Meaning: “strawberry” in Serbo-Croat and “berry” in Polish

July is Strawberry season, so I thought I’d give the time of day to write about this name. In Poland the name actually started out as a form of Jadwiga, but with its coincidental meaning of “berry” in Polish, it broke off as an independent name. In Serbo-Croatian the name specifically means “strawberry.”
