I’d like some positive feedback on the name [name]Sacha[/name]. I know it’s unisex and for many already “gone to the girls”. But I have always considered it more of a boy’s name.
We would NOT consider naming him [name]Alexander[/name] and then calling him [name]Sacha[/name]. [name]Alexander[/name] is not to our taste, and I think it’s risky to name your child one thing wanting them to be called something else (especially something that, while embedded in tradition, isn’t very intuitive). For one thing my mother-in-law doesn’t believe in nicknames.
[name]Sacha[/name] is a name both my husband and I love, and have kept coming back to from the beginning of the pregnancy (I am 32 weeks). [name]Miles[/name] is the middle name after my father-in-law who passed away last year We think the two names flow together really well - [name]Miles[/name] is a tricky middle name to work with! We’ve had trouble finding names we both love. Our girls are [name]Frederique[/name] and [name]Una[/name] [name]Pearl[/name]. Other names we’ve considered are [name]Augie[/name]/[name]August[/name], [name]Tolliver[/name] (Tolly), Toshi and [name]Clancy[/name].
I am a little shy of what our family and friends will think, if they will consider it too girly. So I guess I am looking for some reassurance!
