Astrid, by a long way

Astrid for me too

Cassia. I LOVE it.

Astrid by miles!

Cassia, although Cassandra is nicer.

BlackberryandNettle Mon 17-Mar-14 14:37:13

Cassia for me.

Definitely Astrid.

Astrid, definitely. I do like Cassia do - it has a very pretty sound - but it feels somehow flimsy and insubsta

Cassia! I know one and it is a really pretty grown up name.

Whoops, posted too soon! Meant to say there's something insubstantial about Cassia. I can see it being pounced on as a 'trendy' name a la Sienna and then dating quite quickly. Astrid is more of a solid choice.

Astrid. I do like Cassia too, but I prefer Kezia (which means Cassia).

Astrid. It would be very high on my list, except I once knew an Astrid who was quite up herself and I didn't like her much, although I loved her name.

Cassia, by far. Lovely name.

Astrid is harsh and faddy.

Perchance2dream Mon 17-Mar-14 19:51:32

Cassia how pretty

LargeBustedMamma Mon 17-Mar-14 20:22:12

Think Cassia is one of those name which is becoming increasingly popular and imagine it being like Sharon was when I was younger. Pretty name which I prefer over Astrid though

See when she's born. Both are nice but would suit very different people.

Astrid is all over MN at the moment. Awful name.

Cezella Tue 18-Mar-14 00:52:29

Cassia- don't like Astrid at all!

Sorry OP I really dislike Astrid. Makes me think of a German camp counsellor who has stringy blonde hair, wears Birkenstocks and does 1000 laps in the pool each day.

Cassia seems a bit incomplete and it does make me think of Casio electronics.

Why not name her Cassiopeia? A lovely name, Greek origin and very romantic. Then you can shorten to Cass or Cassia etc.

Cassia is a lovely name. Astrid sounds like a name of a space station
