It is a very beautiful name and I have always quite liked it. The only anynoying thing about this name is how to pronounce it! A lot of people get it wrong!

A very pretty name - all the Saskias I know are beautiful - if I had a daughter I would name her Saskia.

This is my daughter's middle name. I think her name suits her perfectly because it is beautiful, unusual, and traditional.

This is my name =) and as a little girl I hated it! People called me Sasha, Sashkia, Sassya, and so on. But I have grown to love my name and am so happy that it's not a common name and that rarely anyone has it. It's beautiful, feminine, and is unique. It matches my personality because it's a different and creative name. Just like me. =)

I know a German girl named this. I love this name. She doesn't pronounce it ZAH-skee-ah, but SAH-skee-ah. I like both pronunciations!

Saskia is a new love of mine. I must say, the name sounds very... purple. Not just in a royal sense, but in that Saskia makes me think of a long stretch of purple silk. That must be why I like the combo Saskia Violet so much.

My overall impression is it's a very nice name. It's a really cute name for a young adult. Saskia to me is very 60s.

Really lovely name. Sounds artistic without being pretentious.

"Saskia Hamilton" is a song by singer/songwriter Ben Folds and novelist Nick Hornby from their 2010 album Lonely Avenue. The song is about the name of a poet, which Folds and Hornby 'thought she had a fantastic name for her line of work'. Very original, just like the name. :)

Funny, I always thought Saskia was pronounced 'Sass-kah' or 'Shass-kah'. But now that I know how it's actually pronounced, I like it better. :)
