Nadzieja means "hope" in Polish. Delivered from Bible, missionary Paul in letters to Coryntians (1 Coryntian 13:13) wrote about "Trust, Hope and Love" as the most important aspects of Christianity of which Love is the biggest one.

I mentioned this name to my fiance. I told him it means hope in Polish. He told me that it's a name in Berber and Arabic; he said it means someone who survived a horrific event, like war or famine. Also he said it's an "old-lady name"--only very old women in his village are named Nadzieja/Nadzeya. I think the two meanings, hope and survivor, are related to each other anyway.

Nadzieja is one of the most beautiful names in my opinion. It's unique, strong and sophisticated at the same time. Even though it's also a common noun and despite the saying "Nadzieja matką głupców" ("hope is a mother of fools"), I simply love it. It also has a cute pet form Nadzia, although I don't think a child would like to be called that by friends. ;) Nadia (which is lovely, too) would probably be more acceptable.
