Polish Speakers: Sowka?
How exactly would you pronounce the surname Sowka? I'm guessing SOWV-ka, but I'm not 100% certain. Have you ever encountered it before? If you have seen it before, has it had an accent over the "o" or not?Thank you!

It's spelled Sówka and pronounced something like /sUfka/ (where /U/ represents the vowel of 'put'). It's derived from sowa 'owl'.
