My dh has just announced that he loves the name Cassia to my absolute glee!! We prefer the pronounciation Cass ee ah.

So what do you think? Do you know any and what is the response to their name? Also (and I hate using this word) but would it be seen as chavvy blush

Thanks in advance!

I would say Cassia is hippy/indy/alternative.

I've looked it up and it's Greek and also a member of the legume family, related to cinnamon smile

Oh SleepyCatOnTheMat hippy/indy/alternative would be a category I would happily live with grin

We could have sisters Cassia and Cinnamon.....TOTALLY JOKING btw!

I have a Cassia, (aged 2), and I love her name...well I would I suppose! Never met another, and have had lots of compliments on her pretty name. (And a 'hilarious' uncle who calls her Casio).

I liked it because it isn't too out there but still uncommon enough to avoid tons of her friends and classmates having the same name (my own name v popular when I was born so was always one of many!)

Good luck with choosing smile

MizK what way do you pronounce it? I have never met a Cassia either I don't imagine that I will, I'm really surprised its not more commonly used as every time I finda name I like its either super popular or on the up!

MizK Mon 19-Aug-13 16:37:35

Cassie-ah, usually nicknamed Cass smile I don't really like casha as a pronunciation but nobody has used that for her so far....

FingersCrossedLegsNot Mon 19-Aug-13 16:43:32

Yeah, I love the pronounciation Cassie ah and really dislike Cash ah, though I would never in a million years have thought to pronounce it Cash ah, only that I saw it on some forums!

I know a Cassia. She's a lovely little girl.

Also pronounced Cah see ah.

Cassia has definitely moved to number one spot on our list. Do you think it goes with ds Eli? Also what other names do you think may go with it, as ideally we would like another (and I like planning ahead).

I would never think it was said 'Cash-a' either. It's very pretty, and Cass is a cool nickname as well.

Frikadellen I have never heard of the names Adie and Denna, they are very sweet!

I'm so excited that we have finally found our has been a very long journey! Cassia Primrose......swoon.....happy little dance blush

squoosh Wed 21-Aug-13 11:50:09

I would pronounce it as Cash-a just like the very popular Polish girl's name Kasia. Certainly don't think it sounds 'trashy' hmm

Don't like the Cass-e-ah pronunciation as much.

I like it. It's an unusual flower name you don't come across often, although it it becoming more popular in Australia. Def Cass ee a like the tree, not cashier though.

Hulababy Thu 22-Aug-13 01:29:02

Dd had a friend at nursery called Cassia (cass ee ah) - she would be 10 or 11 now.

OrangeBlossom2 Thu 22-Aug-13 07:24:28

I really like Cassia.

It reminds me of DH's family golden retriever who is called Cassie so we wouldn't be able to use it, but it is a very pretty name. I read it the way you would like it pronounced.

UpTheFRIGGinDuff Thu 22-Aug-13 07:27:02

Cassia Primrose is beautiful grin

FetaCheeny Thu 22-Aug-13 13:49:21

I love this name! Never heard it except on mumsnet.

JazzAnnNonMouse Sat 24-Aug-13 12:21:09

I love it - sounds classical not chavvy In the slightest to my ears
