60 years old. Sorry, probably not the response you were hoping for but all the Sue's and the variants of I know are my mum's age.

Like my Mum, as that's her name (without the 'h' at the end). ;)

Susannah has a rather sweet feel to me. I do somewhat picture a vintage feel, like Anne of Green Gables or like a Holly Hobbie doll (I like holly hobbie dolls)

Suki or Zanna do sound less dated to me than Sue, but I think Sue could come back.

Suzanne is much more specifically mid-century to me than Susannah.

I don't think you can really say, as it's just due to personal experience. To me, she is a soft, round person with big boobs and frizzy hair, intelligent and kind. It's due to a person I met while at school.

I think it's a nice name, as long as you are ok with Susie as a nickname.

Susannah is a lovely name. I think Susie is a great name. I picture someone bubbly and kind.

I really like Susannah - I possibly picture a smart, classy and sweet person. It has a vintage but also upbeat feel to me. I like the nns Susie, Sukie, Zannah.

Quiet, agreeable and down to earth is how I'd describe Susannah.

The 8yo in my DD's class. I don't know her very well, but she seems like a nice kid.

I must admit, I would not use it alone (I'm not a nicknames-alone person) but Susie, like Roxy/Bette/Kit/Dot, strikes me as retro but cute.

A sassy funny lady to me - because of the 1 I know, who is in her late 20s and goes by Susie

I like Susannah. I've known 2. Both have been very down to earth, bright, bubbly, friendly and popular.

I knew a Sushannah. She had long brown hair, freckles and was very friendly. Interesting blend of names.

I know two and they're complete opposites. One tall, dark haired, calm, serene. The other tiny, blonde firecracker and a bundle of energy.

I picture a woman who is kind, strong, and a little bit elegant.
