Jan Kowalski

Postby Doug R. » Sat Dec 04, 2010 7:11 pm

There are about 15 Jan Kowalski's that play Cantr, and I was wondering, is this name the equivalent of Jane Doe, a name that you use when you don't know their real name? (Police officer: "We found a Jan Kowalski dead in the woods.")

I won't insult you by trying to translate this using an online translator.

Not really, it is common name in Poland. Like a John Smith.

Yup, if you don't want to give the real name you give Jan Kowalski. It's not a common name in Poland these days (cause every parent knows that he'd hurt his child with giving that name :wink: ), I haven't met anyone named like that in real life.
<snake> that means Cantr on christmas xD
<EchoMan> Well. I would like to think so. ;)

that's right, it's the polish equivalent of John Smith. John == Jan, smith == kowal and Smith == Kowalski

A właśnie, że nie bo Nowak! (It's not true, the most popular is Newman! :P )
