This name is beautiful. It reminds me of a fairy tale. I prefer this to the common Sarah, Sage, Sabrina, and other similar sounding names.

I love this name! I personally prefer it as a boy's name. I'm using it in one of my books.

I love Saga.
It has a very Nordic sound.
It is short but strong at the same time.
And also it gives me a feeling of peace... I don't know why.

I love this name, it left a strong impression on me when I read it in some dictionary of foreign words with explanation 'Nordic goddess of war and history', and me, fan of epic poetry liked it for a that reason. It sounds good, powerful and slightly dangerous, typical 'Queen of Swords' could bear this name, plus it definetely has a dash of adventure and heroism in it. I'll consider giving it to my daughter one day, as it is just a nice international word, beside Nordic goddess meaning.

Decent enough name, but there's also the unfortunate association with the Swedish singer Saga, who is the neo-Nazi answer to Madonna.

This name is fun! Even more so that my name is Storey! :)

Well, I like this name. I found the "cross between sugar and lager" comment absolutely hilarious. I like the association with The Sagas, tales of Viking voyages and other histories (I'm pretty sure they were researched for and written by Snorri Sturlason, but I'm not sure if that's his name or if he wrote it) but I dislike the Twilight Saga association. Anyway, it's a trilogy, not a saga. I don't like this as a first name but as a middle name. Sisters' middle names Saga and Sybil would be cute.

An interesting name that edges the line between quirky-cool and sophisticated.

In Old Norse the name Saga can mean both 'seeing one' AND 'sage'!

This sounds like a cross between sugar and lager, right on man! These are two of my favourite things and I must absolutely name my first-born this, regardless of gender.

Saga is the bassist for the Visual Kei band Alice Nine. He's amazing at it, too. :) And yes, Saga-san is a man, so this must also be a male name.

In some regional variaties of the Anglo-Saxon dialect and Norse language I think this would have been pronounced saa-ya, however, in English saa-ga is the standard which I immediately associate with the idea of a saga, a long story.

This is my name. Despite having to constantly correct people on its pronunciation, I love it very much.

It is the same name as in English: Saga, a fiction-story with loyality and brave characters.

Saga was the name of the girl who rather wanted to be a boy, and pretended to be so to be allowed to play soccer, in the book and film My Life as a Dog. She was a great boxer.

Saga means "journey" in Portuguese. It's a very famous story by Sophia de Mello Breyner Andresen.
