Me and my partner cant decide on a girls name. We both quite like Saskia / savannah but cant choose between the 2

I know a Savannah and she's a horrible child so that's what puts me off that name.

I like them both, but would choose Savannah (Sav).

Oooh, I have a Savannah (often called Vanna). Nobody ever likes it on mn! I also really like Saskia though.

I like both, very nice names.

If you'd asked me 10 years ago I would have said definitely Saskia. Now, whilst I still think Saskia is a beautiful name, Savannah has really grown on me and I think I would chose it over Saskia. But you really can't go wrong with either IMO.

Thank you all 😊xx

I don't understand Savannah as a name. To me, it's a habitat, like Permafrost or Tundra.

Saskia. (I know a horse called Savannah.)

Mrsknackered Sat 15-Apr-17 21:00:00

I like both!
Think Savannah though, I know more Saskia's

Saskia Saskia Saskia! ❤️

I think Saskia is about to increase significantly in popularity, plus there's debate over the pronunciation: sass-kee-ah or sahs-kee-ah.

Saskia, definitely!

Saskia. Or Susanna! But not Savannah.

Savannah, I've always like the name. Besides, if it's good enough for Royals, it's good enough for us plebs grin

Saskia seems a bit posh for me blush
