A sister for Saskia

I’m expecting my second girl, so I’m looking for a name that will fit with her sister’s name, [name_f]Saskia[/name_f].

I like the following:


I’d welcome any thoughts or additional name suggestions. Thanks!

[name_f]Welcome[/name_f] to Nameberry! I like [name_f]Phoebe[/name_f] and [name_u]Vivian[/name_u] from your list. [name_f]Saskia[/name_f] is exotic and striking.

[name_f]Saskia[/name_f] and sister…


I love the name [name_f]Saskia[/name_f]! It’s a family name for me plus my family is part Dutch so I really wanted to use it. Unfortunately my hubs was not on board :frowning:

From your list I like all but I’m not sure any one name is perfect match. [name_f]Tessa[/name_f] doesn’t feel like a full name to me. I do like [name_f]Phoebe[/name_f] and [name_f]Poppy[/name_f] but I’m not 100% sold. [name_u]Vivian[/name_u] feels a little more prim to me to match with [name_f]Saskia[/name_f] (we call my cousin Sass sometimes). What about changing the spelling to [name_f]Vivienne[/name_f] and calling her [name_f]Vivi[/name_f]? Somehow to me that softens the full name and gives a spunkier nickname which fits [name_f]Saskia[/name_f] better in my mind. I think of [name_f]Saskia[/name_f] as a Dutch name that is somewhat popular in the UK but not known very well here. Unusual but not weird (perfect in my book).

Other possibilities…

  • [name_f]Daphne[/name_f]
  • [name_f]Hermione[/name_f] (too HP? I would love to see someone use this name)
  • [name_f]Tamsin[/name_f]
  • [name_f]Renata[/name_f]
  • [name_f]Delphine[/name_f]
  • [name_f]Cecily[/name_f] or [name_f]Celia[/name_f]
  • [name_f]Gemma[/name_f]
  • [name_u]Romy[/name_u]
  • [name_u]Shea[/name_u]
  • [name_f]Amity[/name_f]
  • [name_f]Noelle[/name_f]
  • [name_f]Greta[/name_f]
  • [name_f]Niamh[/name_f]
  • [name_f]Elsa[/name_f]
  • [name_f]Ingrid[/name_f]
  • [name_u]Ruby[/name_u]
  • [name_f]Portia[/name_f]
  • [name_f]Esme[/name_f]
  • [name_f]Drusilla[/name_f]
  • [name_f]Verity[/name_f]
  • [name_f]Dahlia[/name_f]
  • [name_f]Lucy[/name_f]

You are on the right track! Best of luck and congrats!

[name_f]Annora[/name_f] and [name_f]Zara[/name_f] are what came to my mind.

Of your choices I like phoebe and [name_u]Vivian[/name_u] with [name_f]Saskia[/name_f] better than the other two (which normally I love! But they just don’t feel rich enough next to [name_f]Saskia[/name_f]).


[name_f]Danae[/name_f], [name_f]Heidi[/name_f], [name_f]Freya[/name_f], [name_f]Sorcha[/name_f], [name_f]Juno[/name_f], [name_f]Margot[/name_f], [name_f]Sabine[/name_f], Madelief… and many names [name_u]Mischa[/name_u] suggested.

I love [name_f]Saskia[/name_f] and [name_f]Poppy[/name_f]!

Apologies for repeats:

I love [name_f]Saskia[/name_f] and [name_f]Mila[/name_f] together!

I know a [name_f]Saskia[/name_f] who has little sisters [name_f]Aurora[/name_f] and [name_f]Ophelia[/name_f] - it’s such a beautiful sibset.

I like [name_f]Tessa[/name_f] and [name_f]Phoebe[/name_f] with [name_f]Saskia[/name_f], since they share more similar qualities.
I personally don’t think [name_f]Poppy[/name_f] nor [name_u]Vivian[/name_u] sound particularly great - they’re both lovely names, but they just don’t have the right vibes to go with your daughter’s name. [name_f]Saskia[/name_f] is so feminine but also very strong, it makes me think of some exotic princess. [name_f]Poppy[/name_f] is too cutesy, and [name_u]Vivian[/name_u] is old-lady-chic.

A couple of other suggestions -

My friend has three girls - [name_f]Luella[/name_f], [name_f]Saskia[/name_f] and [name_f]Penelope[/name_f]. They get called [name_f]Lulu[/name_f], Sassy and [name_m]Pepe[/name_m].
