I can't believe no one else has said anything about this name. Anyway, I like the name, but no one really knows how to pronounce it and it sounds too harsh to me.

Even if you're Native American, this sounds too over-the-top on a real person.

I've heard that it can be pronounced "correctly" two ways. SAH-Cuh-GAA-wee-uh and SAH-cog-AH-way-uh (I'm not good at writing out pronunciations.)

For some reason, there always seems to be a lot of debate about this name's pronunciation, especially on whether the "g" has a hard of soft sound.

I say: suh-CAW-guh-WEE-eh
Most people I know say: sack-a-juh-WEE-uh.
