DH and I are arguing over whether or not Sasha is predominantly a boy or girl's name these days.  I say girl, DH says boy.  Who do you agree with?

I know of a boy with this name (they are Russian or something similar). But I do like it on a girl more.

It's both.

I know in places like Serbia & Croatia it's actually a nicname for alexander & very much a boy's name.

However here in Aus i find it being used more for a girl.

Endearing myself to nobody at all, I claim it's a unisex nickname for Alexandra/Alexander and can be short for either but I don't like it standalone.

I only know one, who is a girl. But she says it like Sar-sha, not Sash-a

Girl's name. But was going to say boy because of Sacha Baron Cohen. Very similar.

All the Sasha's I know are girls so I say girl.

I went to school with 2 Sasha's - one was a boy and one a girl (they'd now be in their late 30's). I now work with 2 who are in their 20's - one is a man, one a woman. So I'm a 50/50 split original.gif

We used to call my younger brother Sasha for short when he was little (and knew many other boy ones).

In Australia it is generally known as a girls name, in the rest of the world, boy. FWIW I love it for a boy.

Another vote for both.

I know two, and both are girls, so it's more of a girls name to me.

I think it's one of those names that is truly unisex.

As far as I know the roots are that Sasha is a Slavic diminutive of Alexander or Alexandra, like Alex. So equally popular for boys and girls.

I went to High School with a female Sasha, and i know one 6 year old girl called Sasha, so i'm going to go with girl.

It's one of these names that i know is a boy's name.....but IMHO, i think it's too girly for a boy. ph34r.gif

I think girl. The only boy I know is Borat,
