    The -ska names

    I searched the -ska ending a while ago on two different websites because I like the sound of "Alaska" but would never name a daughter that. Several of these have made it to my long list (meaning, far from real "favorites," but could grow on me if my husband likes any). What do you think?

    Aneska (“lamb of God”)

    Kaliska (Native American, Miwok; “Coyote Chasing Deer”)

    Kiska

    Kriska (Variation of Kristen)

    Mariska (Hungarian; diminutive of Mary)

    Treska (Variation of Theresa)

    Triska (Slavic; Czech place name and surname; means “Sliver”)

    Mariska was used quite often in the Netherlands in the 1970's and 80's. The other names i did not know yet: i like Aneska, but not a big fan of the other names.

    Other similar names:
    Siska or Ciska (pronounced the same) related to Franciska
    Annouska/Anoeska/Annuska related to Anna
    Floriska
    Januska related to Johannes
    Jiska (male name from the bible)
    Joska relatef to Joseph
    Juliska also Hungarian related to Julius

    I like Aneska, Mariska and Kaliska.

    Have you considered Eliska? I think it's fairly wearable.

    A little different ending, but I like Saskia.
