I know Sasha Obama is Natasha and also it could be short for Alexandra, but anything else? I love Sasha but not sure what full name should be or if Sasha could be stand alone.

Sasha can stand on its own but it's traditionally the nn from Alexandra/Alexander in Slav languages.

I've come across the name Sasha a number of times, but never as a short version of anything! You can use it as it is imo.

It's never occurred to me that it is short for anything. Lovely name.

in Russian Sasha is nickname for Alexandra or Alexandr

I'd go with Alexandra just because it's the standard full name for Sasha. And it's a beautiful name!

Sasha can also be short for Saskia.

I know a Sascha and prefer that spelling I think!
