Sasha/ Sascha???I'm thinking I like this name for baby number 3 if it's a girl but not sure of the correct spelling or even if I have a preference.WDYT. My other 2 girls are Amelia and Moana.Just looked at the names together. Is it too similar to Moana?

A bit too unisex for my liking but if you use it I would go with just Sasha as I hate silent letters in names.

I have a Sacha, which is the French version of the name.  Otherwise I would go with Sasha, as that is how most people seem to spell it, Sascha just looks too busy to me.

A little girl in my sons class spells her name Sacha. I don't think that this name is too similar to Moana. Lovely name.

I really don't have a preference. Maybe try both out next to the surname or next to the MN. Does one of them 'look' better than the other to you?

Sascha is the German spelling.  I think maybe it looks better.

Sasha,Sascha, Sacha - Not really sure which spelling I prefer - have seen them all.


I dont think it is too similar to Moana at all - in fact seems no more similar than it does to Amelia - all names are quite different other than all ending in a  (like many many other girls names so no problem there)

Not too similar to Moana. All the spellings are acceptable, there is no one correct one. I prefer the look of Sascha myself, but you would probably find most people would spell it Sasha.

To use mainly in Australia, I'd just go with Sasha.  It's the most straightforward.
