My grandfather was from Poland and my father spoke Polish growing up, but I unfortunately never learned much because he spoke English when we were young. My father used to call me (I am giving an English phonetical spelling of it) "kashka". I think I remember him telling me it meant "little lady" or "little princess" or something. Someone told me that Kashka translates to Kate in English, but my name is Mary. Does anyone who knows Polish have any idea of what the word is and how it is actually spelled? Thanks!
