Hi. Due in one week and still stuck for a name.
The short list is Sascha, Piper, Bernadette (DH choice) and Emmeline. Opinions please!
If we went with Sascha, any ideas for a middle name?
Thanks in advance.

Also considering Sascha Mae, or Sascha Valentina should she be born on Valentine's Day!

Sascha and Emmeline are both gorgeous. Piper is ok but I'm really not keen on Bernadette.
What about Sascha Emmeline?

I like Emmaline and Sasha the best, Pippa and Odette as some similar names
Sascha Kate - I prefer Sasha spelling - Sasha Kate is nice
Sascha Ruby - is ok

Sascha and Emmeline are really good names. Not keen on the other two.
I really like the sound of:
One is likely to flow better with the surname I would guess.

Love Sascha but prefer Sorsha.

Sascha and Sacha/Sasha are lovely. .
Piper I like.
Emmeline is pretty although NMS.
Bernadette is very 70's to me - I think of Grease - and not in a good way.
I really like Sascha Mae.

Love Sascha Ruby and Sascha Emmeline! Both are feminine, a little exotic, and have a nice musical sound.

I also like Sascha or Emmeline. Sascha Valentina would be very cool.

I really like Sasha.
As it's soft-sounding I'd choose a MN that starts with a strong consonant (like Katherine/Kate) or Beatrice, Davina, Darcy, Pearl, Penelope, etc.

Emmeline is beautiful and far and away my favourite.
I like Sasha better as a nickname for Alexandra. But I'm not really keen on Sasha in any case.
Bernadette feels very religious to me, not sure why.
I don't care for Piper but do like Penelope.

Thanks for the advice girls. Still wondering if there is another name out there, but at least now I have one as a back up if I go into labour tonight!

I like all 4 of your names, but I'm going to disagree with everyone else and say I love Bernadette, probably my favourite on your list. Classic, underused, easly to spell, nice nicknames - I love it!!
