Which name do you prefer? We are considering these two names for our beautiful baby girl. (Sister to Hugo)

Saskia, it's more unusual.

Love both but probably Saskia as it's more unusual.

Saskia. Beautiful name.

Love Saskia.

Annabel is lovely, but I do like Saskia as well.

Saskia is gorgeous, much nicer and less common than Annabel imo

Saskia - really lovely.

Obviously I might be a little bit partial, but I'd go for Saskia.

Another vote for Saskia.

Saskia. I know a couple of baby Annabel's but not any Saskia

Hugo and Annabel sound lovely

Saskia. I really like it and i had it on my list.

I reallly dislike the name Annabel - sounds a bit drippy to me. I know 3 little Annabels though so obviously others think differently! I think it's going to become quite popular.

I know lots of little Annabel's, Saskia is lovely...very sophisticated.

Annabel 'goes' better with Hugo, but I don't place much importance on that. Saskia is more uncommon, both names are fine. I prefer Annabel, the shortenings (e.g. Sassy or Kia) for Saskia I do not like

Have loved the name Saskia since I was at school with a girl called that. She was known as Saskie most often. She was cool and edgy even at 14! Also German hence the name.

Much better than Annabel - they are very different names I think.

Saskia it's such a cool name

I know a kick-ass Annabel who's a Major in the military and definitely isn't a drippy girl, and personally I prefer it to Saskia.

Saskia is so elegant. Annabel is a doll's name.

See, I know a Saskia who's a total bitch, so I hate the name! But I accept that this may be my own problem... wink
