Baby names

Saskia or Savannah

We keep coming back to both Saskia and Savannah but neither name seems to ‘stick’. Any thoughts? Is Saskia a bit harsh? Is Savannah too much of a long name?
Any other names that spring to mind when you hear these?

I asked ds who he played with at preschool one day a few weeks ago and he responded “Banana.” He was adamant.

It was only when I was looking through the class list at the nativity play that I realised her name was actually Savannah.

Both lovely names but Saskia wins for me.

Savannah Banana is cute! Not a teasing concern IMO

Saskia for definite.

Savannah, Sienna, Sierra, India - all sound like 90s minor actresses/It Girls to me.

Saskia of the two, much classier.
Susannah springs to mind of course, similar sound to Savannah but nicer and more classic, makes a lot of great short names too.

Saskia is beautiful and classy. Savannah has a nice sound but is often called chavvy on name boards (although I disagree with this)

I like both but I think I prefer Saskia

If neither feel quite right then don't force it, keep looking or wait to see what you feel is right once you see her ☺️

I think Savannah is more classic sounding
Saskia is a bit harsher to my ear
