Cassia.

Shortened to Cassie probably.

Or can you suggest anything else?
Englishy/fairly traditional but not popular or boring.

Prefer flower names.

Thank you!

Vixxfacee Tue 24-May-16 11:31:12

WellErrr Tue 24-May-16 11:32:39

MissBattleaxe Tue 24-May-16 11:33:37

Really pretty.

WellErrr Tue 24-May-16 11:34:14

DH will accept Cassie, but says that Cassia is too like Shania type names.

Or Casio watches.

But I just LOVE it.

MrsEricBana Tue 24-May-16 11:34:32

Yes v pretty.

WellErrr Tue 24-May-16 11:34:50

Again, sorry all Shanias. I'll shut up now.

Iliveinalighthousewiththeghost Tue 24-May-16 11:38:43

Beautiful name, but other suggestions
Azalea
Bluebell.
Lavender
Freesia
Pansy
Tulip
Heather
Dandelion

Vixxfacee Tue 24-May-16 11:39:35

No it's been on my list for a while!

I don't think it will be an evie type name. It isn't similar to Shania in my opinion.

EnriqueTheRingBearingLizard Tue 24-May-16 11:40:37

You say Cassia and I automatically say bark. It's Chinese Cinnamon.

How about something like Cassandra and shorten it for her pet family name or nickname?

Vixxfacee Tue 24-May-16 11:41:05

Camellia

WellErrr Tue 24-May-16 11:45:56

Agree vixx! When are you due?

lighthouse DANDELION?

Get out.

grin

Iliveinalighthousewiththeghost Tue 24-May-16 11:53:02

Well I suppose at one time people would have thought. You can't use Rose as a name. That's a flower. Any name goes now. grin

Really like Cassia: not Cass, Cassie or Cassandra though.

I like Cassius for a boy too (obviously not as a sibset though!)

hamabeads Tue 24-May-16 11:59:10

Prefer Cassandra.

ABitAsleep Tue 24-May-16 11:59:23

I prefer Cassidy rather than Cassia, still shortened to Cassie though.

Other 'fairy' type names could be;

Blossom
Bryony
Gail
Elvira/Elvina (Elvie/Elfie)

I really love minipie's suggestion of Calista.

Kasia (Polish and pronounced Ka-sha) is a beautiful alternative to Cassia.

What about Saskia?

Lots of people dislike DC3's name. I even had a friend send me a lengthy email about her dislike for our chosen name. She was a bit red-faced when we decided to go with our chosen name. So if Cassia is really in your heart and you love it, why not go with it?

WellErrr Tue 24-May-16 13:28:56

Oooh Vocational can you say what it is?

I do love Cassia. I'm 95%.

minipie Tue 24-May-16 15:41:23

shock who does that Vocational?

I have friends whose DC names are a bit hmm but I wouldn't dream of saying so.

what is the name?

julfin Tue 24-May-16 22:39:17

I'd never heard of it until earlier this evening on another thread (was that you?) but I like it. Cassie is nice too.

Sophronia Wed 25-May-16 05:33:19

How about Kezia / Keziah? It means cassia or cinnamon.

CoYoAddict Wed 25-May-16 05:38:33

It is quite pretty but yes, it's Chinese cinnamon which is allegedly quite toxic.

Not that most people will know or care about that.
