That's it really. Sasha's full name would be Alexander.

I also like Wlliam but DH won't consider it!

In Germany it's illegal to register a female Sacha. In Russua and the Slavic countries is predominantly male and always a nn for Alexander. In the US it's predominantly female. I can think of 2 famous bearers of the name: Sacha Baron Cohen (male) and Sasha Obama (female). So hard, I don't want to saddle him with a name he will think is too feminine.

Daniel is the safest option isn't it?

I love Sacha, but wasn't brave enough to use it. We still went with Alexander and call him Alexi. Assuming you're braver than me, I vote Sasha.

Alexander would be first choice but not Sacha
And Daniel.

Daniel - by a mile.

Alexander would also get my vote so long as you DO NOT give him sas/cha as a nick name. I have known two - both girls. Not easy for a boy to have a girly name when he is growing up.

Daniel

All the others quite popular atm and Daniel is classic, lovely name.

AntimonySalts Sun 27-Jan-13 22:19:55

Reuben. Not Ethan.

Daniel, but then I'm biased.

Are you in the uk? If so, I do think Sasha is very feminine.

Daniel.

Don't saddle him with Sacha it's far too effeminate. Think of him as teenager, they are self conscious enough.

Alexander for Sasha

Daniel

Reuben and Max make me think of dogs.

Ruprekt Sun 27-Jan-13 22:29:07

Max

My Max says it is the best name in the world. Short and easy to spell and not too many nicknames for it.

Sasha makes me think of a girl...
