agree  Boyan Brezinsky: След като прегледах набързо статията в Wikipedia, се оказа, че имало и разни особености според това, кой избира кума/кумата, както и, естествено, според държавата.

agree  Yavor Dimitrov: I'd go for "matron of honor" because "maid of honor" is usually an unmarried woman although a 'кума' can be either married or single in Bulgaria. :)
