Sanaa Maris

I found it in a baby name book. It's pronounced Sa-NAW and it means "Work of Art" in Swahili, but I think it'll work in our case. I've never flipped like this over a name. DH loves it too, even after I told him the Origin. And maybe it's just me, but doesn't Sanaa Maris have that "Christmassy" feel? I still want to know what you think

I really like Sanaa Maris and think it's a gorgeous name. Also it has a double letter -aa just like your other girl's names which is nice.

Me not so much. I am old school and would like to be able to figure out the name from the written form. So if you are patient and are not going to get rude and pissy when I mispronounce it and misread it then go for it. I think I'll hear it as Shawna.

Also I think Sanaa is too different from the other names you have picked.

I agree! My biggest pet peeve is when people give their children unique names & then get mad when I misprounounce them. But if your willing to nicely educatione I'm cool with it.

Pretty, but I'm not crazy about Maris. I don't think pronunciation will be a huge issue. There is an actress named Sanaa who is getting pretty famous. It just might be misheard as Sonya a lot.

Although, to be honest, I have no idea where the Christmassy vibe is coming from. I don't get that at all.

I think that Sanaa "high" has passed. I think I was only seduced by the uniqueness and sound. I've never heard of this Sanaa Lester (?) actress, but apparently everyone else in my family has. So the search continues. I'm not worried, I have a long list and roughly 54 days.
