  5. what kind of name is this?

what kind of name is this? Lock Rss

The name is Saskia and i just wanto get a feel for how other people see this name.. is it unique, feminine, strong, modern? or is it old fashioned and straight?

thanks so much

i thought i'd add that i am fairly certain it's of danish origin
My midwife's daughter is called this and I like it, it sounds Russian (even though it's probably not)I think it's different without being weird iykwim
TBH, it sounds Russian to me.

Since I am not of that origin I would probably find it an odd choice of name if someone gave it to their child in my circle.

Having said that - the name you give a child should be your choice and it really doesn't matter what myself or anyone else thinks.

If you like / love it, use it! grin
I really like the name Saskia, had it on the list for last bub but had a boy.
It is Dutch. I know quite a few Saskia's some Dutch, some not. It isn't the most common name in the world but I think it is lovely. You can look at it and know how to pronounce it which in my book (the book of being a teacher and having to call the roll!) is the main thing. Oh, I am in NZ though, and we seem to have different 'normal' names IYKWIM grin
I really like the name.I think it as a beautiful and strong name.
I prefer just Sasha but maybe thats coz Saskia just doesnt sound feminine at all to me!? Good luck deciding smile



I like saskia. Sass is a cute nickname too.
i know a girl called saskia, shes pretty and it suits her.
