A colleague of mine, who is from Poland, is named Jerzy and insists the correct pronunciation is "YUR-ik".

The correct pronunciation of the name Jerzy is in fact "YEH-zhih" (the closest approximation I could make.) The most common nickname for Jerzy is Jurek, which is doubtless what your colleague was referring to.

I have also seen this used for girls and another spelling I have seen used is Jersy.

Jerzy Kozinski, 20th century author, is a famous bearer of this name. His novels include "Being There" and "The Painted Bird."

The name looks like the word 'jersey'.

Jerzy Popieluszko was a Polish priest who did what he could for the solidarity and really got punished for it. And it's not 'jersey'.

I like a lot of Polish names, but I hate this name. I unfortunately think of Jerzy Kosinski and his horrible book The Painted Bird.

It's funny because while I know it's a Polish name, all I can think of is a greasy guido sporting an airbrushed t-shirt that says "JERZY'S FINEST".

Nice name. But I prefer Jurek.
