i know a girl called sasha and her first name is alexandra, i never knew sasha was a short form of alexandra. the sasha i know really suits her name, alexandra doesn't suit her at all.
unique names are key

Unisex name

I was born in Russia and I was always called "Sasha" by the Russian community, even though my legal name is Alex. I was called both even after I was adopted and came to America at the age of 3. The use of "sasha" and "Alex" depends on the speaker. In russia a person would call me Alex to show respect and call me "sasha" if they had authority over me, or were claiming to.

Sasha is amazing name ... when i was little I didn't like it ... but i love it now ... especially because of the background to it ... and they got it wrong ... it has a russian origin ... not english

My daughter's name is Alexsia, and I knew a Russian guy who called her Sasha - I always corrected him and he explained Sasha and Alexander.

I am considering Sasha for a girl, not sure what hubby thinks yet and can't agree on names for a boy. I only know one Sasha (a mom at my son's school) and every time she says her name, I enjoy hearing it.

I'm Russian as well and when I moved to America it was rather difficult explaining to people why Sasha is short for Aleksandra. Nevertheless I love my name because it is definately unique in America. But never would have I guessed that the name means "defender of mankind" :)

My best friend in chilhood was named Sacha (boy). I love this name as much for girls as for boys. The only down low was the constant Cha-Cha-Cha teasing but that didn't last long.

i am so glad my parents named me sasha. it's always made me feel unique in school and at work and i think it's contributed to who i am: unique!

I love this name, but seriously people....just because a name ends with an "a" does not mean it's for a girl. Sascha or Sasha(if you want to spell it that way) is blatantly a boy name. It's short for Alexander, not Alexandra or anything of the sort.
My daughter's name
written by vickie, September 18, 2008
My daughter is called Sasha Elise and she is one years old. The name just suits her, she is so pretty and that is what I imagine someone with the name Sasha to be. When I was pregnant, I wanted a name that was unique as there are so many Lily's, Grace, Jessica, Ellie and Ella's around in the UK at the moment. I wanted her to have a unique name when she starts school. I was aware of the Alexander and Russian connection but it doesn't bother me as we are English and live in England so not a lot of people actually know that. I get a mixed reaction when I tell people her name, but I wanted her to have a name that was both suitable from being a baby and when she is a teenager - I don't know about you, but I would hate to be called Lily or Ella when a teenager, it just sounds like an elderly persons name! Sasha is funky, unique, young, fresh & everyone will always remember your name! I have Mia or Freya picked next if I have another little girl. Go ahead call your baby, Sasha Elise, beautiful name xx
