    Exactly what I was thinking.

    Hmm.... When I see an unfamiliar name I always think it must be from another culture or ethnic background and I am just not familiar with it. It is so interesting to me that other people might see an unfamiliar name and think it must be made up! This was not even an issue I was concerned about before. I was mainly thinking that if I choose an ethnic name I would want it to be relatively easy to pronounce and spell.

    Because so many people make up names and use kr8tive spellings

    At first glance people will see Sahara and think the n is a typo. Suhana or Sohana look like ethnic names

    Honestly, I'd guess that it was Japanese. And in fact, there is a Sahana Software Foundation that's Japanese. Also, Sahana is a character in a manga from what I found on Google. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sundome
