Reminds me of one joke I picked up during my French studies:

Monsieur Dupont est malade. Il est ŕ l'hôpital. Sa femme vient le voir. Elle demande: "Mon mari, Monsieur Dupont, dans quelle chambre est-il?"

Dupont? - Chambres 14, 15, 17, 19, 21, 30...

Yeah, it's interesting, I didn't know that Nowak was the No. 1 in Poland. BTW, lots of Polish words or expressions sound very funny to us, but I guess it's the same vice versa

obviously yes for us Czech in general sounds like a baby talk/diminutive Polish, it's really cute.
I remember my sister told me that when she was in Czech Republic in a supermarket with her Slovakian boyfriend and she'd lost him for an hour and when she finally found him she yelled at him "Szukam Cię od godziny, jestem wyczerpana" which means in Polish "I'm looking for you for an hour, I'm exhausted". But in Czech (and Slovak) šukat means something completely different She was really confused why all those people were laughing/staring at her

I met a French boy named Martin. I love saying it in French. And I love saying Anglophone names like George R. R. Martin in French accent in my head.

That's good. Haven't heard it before.
