Nickname for Sakura

[name]Hi[/name]! Any nick name suggestions for [name]Sakura[/name]?!

[name]Sassa[/name], Sassy, [name]Kiki[/name], Kura, Kuri, Saki, [name]Sisi[/name]

I love the name [name]Sakura[/name]!!
I like the previous posters idea of Sassy, so cute! I know one [name]Sakura[/name] who is about 3, her parents call her [name]Sukie[/name] which I really like too :slight_smile:

Awesome! Thanks guys! I really do like the nickname Sassy!

What about the nickname “[name]Zuzu[/name],” stemming from “[name]Susan[/name]” in It’s a Wonderful Life"…[name]Sakura[/name] has some of the same letters as [name]Susan[/name]! Thoughts?

I think [name]Zuzu[/name] would be lovely!! I also love [name]Kiki[/name], Sassy and [name]Sukie[/name]!!!

[name]Sakura[/name] is a lovely name!! [name]Do[/name] you pronounce it with a short or long u? (Sa-ku-ra or Sa-kur-a… not sure if that eplains it right!)

I’ve always heard it pronounced “Sa-kur-a” - it means [name]Cherry[/name] [name]Blossom[/name], and my husband proposed during the [name]Cherry[/name] [name]Blossom[/name] festival time, so it has so much wonderful meaning to us! And amazingly enough, [name]Sakura[/name] is the only name out that I have found which directly means “[name]Cherry[/name] [name]Blossom[/name]!” Neither one of us is Japanese though(I’m Norwegian/Irish and he is [name]German[/name]/Native American), so we thought we should have a nickname just in case:)
