DH wants to name DD1 Susanna as it has important family links for him but I'm just not sure if I like it or not.

What does the mumsnet jury think?

I actually really like it although I would probably go Annie rather then Susie for a nickname. Susannah is nice too with the h.

I like it! Very underused at the moment but a lovely classic name.

It’s one of my favourite girls names smile

I love it.

I prefer the spelling Suzanna.

Awesome name. Was top of our list for a long time.

Gorgeous name. Lots of nice nicknames you could use too, Susie, Sukie, Zanna etc. Not overused as pp said.

I don’t like it. Makes me think of that awful Kinks song. And annoying women who go by “Suzie”. Very 80s. Just me though. Make it a middle name if you’re not fussed?

Love it, it was on our shortlist for DC1. I like it best without the H on the end.

ElizaDontlittle Thu 26-Apr-18 05:15:11

I like it. Don't use a z though. Lots of shortening and classic enough without being too popular.
What names do you like OP?

Love it.

Love it (spelled as you have done). Dislike the shortenings, but there is no rule to say a name has to be shortened.

SinglePringle Thu 26-Apr-18 05:55:03

Love it but spelt the traditional way with the ‘h’ at the end. It’s a beautiful, classic name.

It's a lovely name

GraceLeeper Thu 26-Apr-18 06:39:04

I like it! It's a very lovely name and very unique.

ThroughThickAndThin01 Thu 26-Apr-18 06:40:54

Like it and love Susie.

Lots of nickname possibilities. I know an adult Anna who’s actuality susanna.

flumpybear Thu 26-Apr-18 06:57:06

Not keen either - I'd agree to middle name

Shadowboy Thu 26-Apr-18 07:00:10

I quite like it. I don’t love it but I don’t think negatively of it.

I like it, it was on my list if DS had been a girl.

YoucancallmeVal Thu 26-Apr-18 07:22:44

Lovely name. Susannah is the spelling I prefer. I don't think it's very 80s - I went to school with lots of Suzannes which is a very different name in my opinion.

Really like op and love Suzie as nn too

17caterpillars1mouse Thu 26-Apr-18 07:28:21

Like a PP I like Susanna (Much better with a h) as long as Susie is avoided. I love Annie though

pieceofpurplesky Thu 26-Apr-18 07:34:34

Beautiful name.

pipilangstrumpf Thu 26-Apr-18 08:14:19

Susanna is beautiful. I wouldn't add an h!
