Saskia definitely

Based purely on my dislike for Saffron as a name. To me, it's always going to be the kind of rice I get with Thai takeaway.

I honestly like them both OP, very nice.

Both nice. There's also sapphire - which I like best of all

Saskia is a lovely name.
DD has a friend called Saskia and she can't say her name without slowing right down and thinking about it, it's so cute (she's 5)

Will go against the grain and say Saffron - really like Saffy as a nickname. I'm not keen on Saskia, can't think of a good reason why, I think it's the hard k sound in the middle. They seem quite different names to me, Saffron feels quite hippy and free spirited. The only Saskia I have ever met was very posh.

Saskia. I also like pp's suggestion of Sapphire.

I like both. Probably just prefer Saskia.
