Simple country girl. Sweet but lacking substance?

Absolutely love it! It's in my top 5 girls names. I think it rolls of the tongue nicely, love the way it looks and find it a pretty,  classical name.

Like it! Although I prefer it spelt with a z rather than a s.

I also like Sally, not sure why I think they are similar though!

Not really a fan. Think it’s because I don’t like the name Susan and if just reminds me of that. I prefer Hannah or Anna.

I love it!  Gorgeous, classic and rolls off the tongue.

I also prefer it with the z spelling.  

I know a young Suzannah and her nickname is Zannah or Zannie, which I think has some spunk to it.

DD’s is spelled with a z.  I liked the option of Zan as a nickname- thinking netball and called out to “Zaaan”

But DD goes by her middle name.
And she doesn’t like netball

I really like it and I prefer your spelling (though do concede that the NN possibilities with the "z" spelling are good)

PP mentioned Hannah - I love that too.

And Louisa.

Bit cumbersome for me.

I prefer Susanne or Hannah or Anna.

It's a big yes from me.  I especially love Susannah Ruth the name of one lucky EB offspring.

For me I think of an old lady.

It’s a nice name, but nms, if you love it, go with it

I think it’s a lovely name, and would use it.
It belongs to someone very special to me and I have nothing but warm fuzzy feelings when I hear the name.

Great name. :)

#17 Luci

I like it, also with a Z. It was on my list when I had my first DD.

It's not bad. I like it somewhat.

It seemed every second kid was called Savannah about 10 years ago and I REALLY dislike that name. Susannah much much nicer.

I don’t love it, don’t hate it either. It’s ok

#20 Imaginary friend

I quite like Savannah - although I agree has different vibe to Susannah.

For some reason Savannah doesnt seem cumbersome to me like Susannah does.

I think because it seems a complete name whereas Susannah seems Susan with add- on's.

#21 Bethlehem Babe

Love it. Reminds me of a spunky kid I knew during the uni days.

Big yes from me.

That’s it - I don’t like add-on names - I knew i didnt like the subset where its a boys name + ellle, ine etc. but that didnt explain why I didnt like other names like this. Give me the original name without a frill.

Not that the above makes Susannah a bad choice for others. It does make me sing too - but its a lovely tune at least .

Its a name that I feel like I should like, but I really don't.

I would think that Susannah/Susanna is actually the original. Susan etc have evolved out of it. Someone with more knowledge of names may know further.  

I quite like Susannah because it was the name of my many- Greats Grandmother who first came to Australia in the 1850s.  It's one I might consider as a middle name if I have another girl.

What song are you all referring to?  (Feeling like I should know but it's not coming to me!!)
