Love Xanthe, Susannah and Eliza. Also Romy but prefer it as a nn for Romilly. Zanna and Sukie could both work as nn for Susannah although personally I don't really like Sukie, it sounds drippy to me. Sukie is nicer IMO. Not a fan of Elsie
We have similar taste! I LOVE Susanna and prefer this spelling without the h. Then you have your nicknames from this, Sukie, Zanna. I really like Xanthe and Eliza as well. But as a first born name I would pick Susanna as it's the most classic. Like Romilly/Romy and don't like Elsie.
Xanthe - my youngest is a Xanthe. I love it and have never come across another. It does pop up on here a lot though, it's true. Sukie - don't like this at all. And it's surely a nn only, couldn't possible be a full name in its own right? Zana - Really like it. Sounds like possible it should be short for something? Susanna - Like it. nn Zana? Elsie - it's ok Romy - like it Eliza - not keen
Not at the moment she doesn't but she's only 1. I would probably call her Zan/Zanna sometimes but my oldest is Savannah and always goes by Vannah so I think we'll be sticking with Xanthe at home at least.
