I know names have different connotations for different people but what names say sweet but sassy to you? For a girl, bonus points if uncommon & is teamed with a longer middle name!

Koa and Orla were on my list. Just says spunky but kind to me.
Damn DH (not that we ever had a DD but he'd ruled it out anyway.)

Surely it’s the child’s own personality that makes them “sassy” not a name that they may never be able to live up to 🙄

Oh, wow thank you! Some serious food for thought here. It’s interesting as many names I’ve thought about have popped up again.

Fleur, Tandy, Holly, Kit, Cora, Primrose (Prim).

I vote Lacey Octavia.  Lacey has such a girly feel about it, but a lot of spunk as well.
