    Help a friend who wants to name her baby Savannah

    A friend of mine, aged 17, has just had a baby girl. She hasn't given it a name yet but is considering using Savannah.

    If anyone can save this baby from being given this names it's you :) PLEASE, I need a list of alternatives to Savannah to give to her to try and persuade her not to use this name.

    Thankyou in advance!

    I don't think Savannah is terrible at all. I can't necessarily say I would use it myself, but I think it's sweet, and if she loves it, I don't think you should try too hard to persuade her against it . . . it could be a LOT worse!

    I agree with Jlm. Savannah is kind of popular, but if she loves it she should definitely use it. It could be much worse!!

    However, here are some other names she might like:
    Sariah
    Selena
    Susannah
    Serena
    Seraphina
    Sylvia
    Savita
    Sabina

    I hope this helps! :)

    EDIT:
    Juliana
    Lydia
    Angeline/Angelina
    Mirabella
    Fiona
    Hermione
    Ariadne/Adriana
    Evadne
    *Sabina
    *Ettienna

    Hey my name is Savannah! And I love my name! People call me Savi, and I have always gotten comments about how my name is 'so pretty'. It is getting more and more common, but I still think its a good choice! If you absolutely can not stand it, or she doesnt love it- what about:
    Natalia [nn Tali]
    Lydia
    Julia
    Alexis
    Avery
    Hannah
    Rose
    Willow
    Shiloh
    Annaliese

    All these are kinda random suggestions, theyre just names I like and she might as well- let us know what she decides on!
