Which do you prefer and why? Oh and the big brother and movie associations ont bother me at all smile

HillBillySillyBilly Fri 25-Jan-13 18:27:45

Don't not ont

That's a tricky one, both good choices. I really can't say which I prefer. Do they sound okay with the surname? Any siblings already, does one name flow better with their name(s) than the other?

Both are really lovely. But I think they are different, so you'd need to look at the baby to see which one suited best.

Today I prefer Juno. smile

MerylStrop Fri 25-Jan-13 19:52:37

I think they are both absolutely beautiful names
But I wouldn't use either of them as they are such a lot to live up to, Juno especially.

I have no idea what associations you mean!

I think Juno is a marvellous name, but I think Saskia is lovely too and probably more liveable-with.

I love Saskia - DH vetoed! :-(
To me Juno sounds like Australian slang for June!

I really like Saskia, I think it's punchy and fresh. She'll have character and energy.

Juno is a bit of a wet squid for me, in fact, I really don't like it, it does nothing for me...

Saskia is lovely. Sorry but I don't like Juno at all x

Juno. I may in fact steal it for a future dd grin

sad I thought Juno was a boy's name blush

Thanks for all the comments, though it seems pretty evenly divided. Both sound lovely with our surname so that doesn't narrow I down. We have one ds already called Eli. I think both names sound nice with Eli....wdyt??

To some extent, nice as it is to have a name ready, sometimes when you see your baby for the first time, one name seems just right.

Both go nicely with Eli. smile

Purely my gut reaction, Saskia to me sounds outgoing, fun, arty. Juno sounds more grounded, independent, once her mind's made up that's it. Sorry that's of no help to you at all!

Sunnysummer Fri 25-Jan-13 22:41:43

Love them both so much! Would be on my shortlist if we were having a girl smile initially I liked Juno best, but got put off a bit after a friend (with a surname that's also a noun!) had one, and lots of people joked about it sounding like 'd'you know____?". It's still a lovely name, but agree that Saskia might be easier to live with, and has more nickname options depending on her personality. Either is great though.

WickWackThurso Fri 25-Jan-13 22:43:49

Juno wins for me.

HillBillySillyBilly Sat 26-Jan-13 15:59:58

grin @ do you know.....I have thought of that but I don't think it bothers me enough to reject the name on that basis. I'm glad you think they both go nice with Eli.

FellatioNels0n Sat 26-Jan-13 16:37:56

I quite like Saskia. I love Juno.

Hmm Sassy would be a nickname with a positive connotation (apart from sounding a bit like an item of Boden clothing)
