Just watching a film and Savannah popped up. Something about it I really like.

Thoughts?

Sure why not.

Nice name. I think one of Peter Phillips' daughters is named Savannah.

RickOShay Sat 16-Sep-17 22:04:45

Really like Savannah.

Mrsknackered Sat 16-Sep-17 22:06:10

I really like it. I know two little ones and they are really lovely

Love it. We had an intern called Savannah last year, 21 year old.

I have a 14 year old Savannah.

Quite often gets a slating on here. Nice to see positive replies.

Go for it! I don't know any others personally.

Not keen. I prefer Susannah.

tellmyfriendsiminlove Sun 17-Sep-17 02:51:15

Lots of porn stars called savannah

Pemba Sun 17-Sep-17 04:42:47

Not bad, but I also prefer Susannah, which is gorgeous.

Nice name

tellmyfriendsiminlove,

"Lots of porn stars called savannah"

Well Amber is the 3rd most commonly chosen porn name
[source: my (mortified-to-find-that-out) non-porn star friend called Amber], but that doesn't prevent it from still being regarded as a beautiful name too!

OP,
I like it. Though prefer Siena/Sienna.

ChocolateCrunch Sun 17-Sep-17 06:56:02

I like it. I know a 10 year old with the name.

londonfeather Sun 17-Sep-17 06:59:53

Really like it, it reminds me of the miller sisters. Only thing about it that puts me off a touch is I know one and people abbreviate it to 'Sav' which isn't nearly as nice.

I really liked it after watching a film called letters to Juliett set in Italy. Thought it was a beautiful name it does get bad press on here thou so agree nice to see positives

Sugarpiehoneyeye Sun 17-Sep-17 10:51:34

Very nice ! 😄

SuperBeagle Sun 17-Sep-17 11:15:36

I like it.

Savannah, Georgia is a fabulous place too.

grufallosfriend Sun 17-Sep-17 12:08:44

I don't like it personally.

MumBod Sun 17-Sep-17 12:36:42

Lovely name.

MammieBear Sun 17-Sep-17 17:39:42

Not keen myself but I think our personal preference is irrelevant, it's becom very popular recently similar names are Venitia, Sahara, Vienna, India, Florence, Georgia, Lousiana.

Thank you.
Agree Sav is horrid 🙈 is that unavoidable?

MrsMarigold Tue 19-Sep-17 21:37:57

I love it, I grew up in Africa on the savannah grasslands, such beautiful positive associations of blonde grass, heat and dust. A favourite of mine.

I know an elderly Susannah, she goes by Sannah, so I suppose it could also be a shortening for Savannah too.

LorelaiVictoriaGilmore Wed 20-Sep-17 13:52:01

I think Savannah is lovely. I think 'Anna' is a more natural nickname than 'Sav'.

It's a bit of a Chardonnay name to me.
