What do you think of this name? Is it too fussy do you think? (I'm not into very OTT names). Any thoughts or other suggestions much appreciated.

I like it; unusual and pretty.

Lovely - classic, feminine and not overused.

I like it but admit I am biased as DD2 is Keziah, which is a slightly different variation of Cassia. The name originates from the Cassia tree, and its bark is the spice Cinnamon, which is one of my favourite smells and another reason I love this name ( if you did not know that already smile

Lovely - we have one in the family

I know a Cassiopia and she gets called Cassia, I quite like it.

Sorry but I immediately thought of Casio, as in calculators, but maybe I'm a bit odd.

I know of one, who belongs to a MNer. It's a gorgeous name, I would consider it for any future DD.

I love Cassandra

Not as keen on Cassia but not sure why

I love it when pronounced the original way, which is cash-uh, as it's the feminine form of Cassius (original pronunciation cash-us).

I don't like the pronunciation cass-ee-ah.

love the cass-e-ah, sound but not like the CAS part..

I love it, not too fussy at all. It's actually top of my names list for a girl too.

TremoloGreen Tue 04-Dec-12 16:17:03

The other names I was considering were Helena (Nell), Meredith (Edie) and Thea, if you wanted to gauge me in the fussy stakes!

Love, love, love it, but we have a cat called Sasha, so never used it! Too much rhyming!

As a 'Kessia', Cassia is one of the names i often get called (because apparently people can't read). I actually quite like it, although i would say that people do seem to get confused by double s's in a name and i often have mine pronounced the same way as you would say 'Russia'.
How about Cassie?

Love it! Prefer it pronounced cash-a rather than cassee-a.

Cass/Cassie is a great nickname.

i am a Cassy, so i like it!!

Tremolo are you me? All of your names except Thea are on our list too, although I had Cassie and DH suggested Cassia...

Great minds etc

TremoloGreen Thu 06-Dec-12 11:29:15

Ha ha, ivana, we dropped Thea in the end, as living in South London, it may be pronounced Fea... what's on your boy's name list?

ivanapoo Thu 06-Dec-12 17:57:34

Tremolo We're awful at boys' names, really struggling - at the moment Rafferty (although apparently this is Jude Law's child's name which makes me feel a bit wrong about it), Ezra, Balthazar, Thilo and some other Jewish names (we're the least Jewish people ever) like Eli, Ira and Saul. DH also likes Bear.

We did have Theodore and Theophilus on there too, funnily enough, but dropped it as H can't get past Theo as Theo Walcott!

Also on the girls' list we have Mirie (short for Miranda), Bay and Essie which would be short for various names.

What about you?

TremoloGreen Fri 07-Dec-12 13:36:24

Ooh, I like the nickname Raff! V. cool. I also love Ezra, I was trying to convince my friends to call their PFB this as they were looking for an OT name, but they went for Reuben in the end smile We also had Theo on the list but have got it down to Hugh and Miles - we'll just see what name the baby looks like grin
