Pronounced Sa-tow.

Whoever claimed Satu is pronounced "Sa-tow" either has no idea how to pronounce Finnish or has confused the name for a non-Finnish name.

Satu is pronounced SAH-too.

This is also a Japanese female name meaning "Sugar".

Somebody claimed Satu is a Japanese name meaning "sugar". They're thinking of Satou. Not only is it spelled different, it's pronounced different (Satou = Sah-toh; Satu = Sah-too).

To those above, Satu can NEVER be a Japanese feminine name. It is true Sato means sugar, but when it is used for a first name, it doesn't mean that way, it means "a hometown" or "smart".

This is my sister's name, and I've always been jealous of her, because she has such a beautiful name and I don't.

It has one of the prettiest meanings.

The reason why I love Finnish names because of their amazing and wonderful meanings, this one here 'Satu' has a very unique meaning... I think it's very very nice. I like it because it's not too common and isn't trendy (Most of the time I am a huge fan of those type of names).

According to (http://verkkopalvelu.vrk.fi/Nimipalvelu/default.asp?L=3) 26581 Finnish women bear the name 'Satu'. Males are given the name but rarely. In 1960-79 15745 women were given 'Satu', which was the time period 'Satu' was highly used in. I can tell it is decreasing in popularity, but it's still a great name that suits all ages... I think it should boost! It's too pretty to go extinct.
