Comments for KATARZYNA:

I believe Katarzyna is pronounced "cat-are-ZHNEE-na." I think it is such a beautiful name!

Pronounced [k -A - t - A - Z - I - n - A ]
Unfortunately the phonetic alphabet doesn't work here, so I replaced it by:
A - pronounced like the beginning of diphthong in "eye"
Z - something like "s" in "measure" and french "j" in "Jaqueline" "Jaques"
I - like "i" in "bit"

While attending a modeling call in October 2005, the conductor of the event was calling names off of an attendance sheet. Each person was told to say a bit about themselves, their height, and their goals in life. Just before I was called, one of the managers called out this name (Katarzyna). I was a little surprised to hear it, as it is so unusual. The girl was about a year older than me, was called "Kate" as well, and was Polish. I suppose because of its uniqueness, it has stayed with me for all these months.

Pheadirean, I believe you encountered the Katarzyna who is currently on Cycle 10 of "America's Next Top Model" (and Tyra Banks says her name differently--and incorrectly--every week).

It's hard to say this name but it's a bit like cat/are/zjin/a.

It's my name and the pronunciation is like cat-are-zhina, but "i" sounds like "i" in this not like "i" in bit.

Pronunciation should be kah-tahr-ZHI-nah.

For pity's sake. There is NO "r" sound in this name! Don't be such ignorants pretending you know something you have no idea about. "Rz" in Polish is pronounced like "j" in French (je, Jacques, etc.). So why are you trying so much to put the "r" sound in there? Why do you even bother if the pronunciation given here is already correct? Before making a complete idiot of yourself you could at least check it out on wiki, seriously, guys.

On second thought the pronunciation is not entirely correct. I've checked the key carefully and it seems that it should rather be "ka-ta-ZHI-na" without the "h"'s. Although using them probably looks intuitively more accurate to English native speakers. Nevertheless the key says the "h"'s shouldn't be there.

This is a pretty name... but I imagine it would be butchered by pronunciation. Maybe I am wrong though. A real gorgeous name. I just really love it and adore it.
