Question re Polish parents' anglicised names on 1896 UK Naturalization Certificate #poland #unitedkingdom

I have two 1896 UK Naturalization Certificates of Polish ancestors who were naturalized with anglicised names only. That I understand. What throws me is that these documents that require also parents' first names, in both cases give those first names in anglicised versions too. While I cannot be certain, I am nevertheless fairly confident that neither set of parents left Poland. Do I have to be wrong or could I be right?? In other words, was it usual to anglicise all parents' names on these documents, regardless of whether they were in the UK or not?
