I see the appeal, but I think it has too many s's for me. It's a beautiful place though.

Zelliew Says:


I don't consider this a suitable name for a girl

AoifeORegan Says:


Technically it's ah-SEE-SEE, but still, I agree.

Zoey_Artemisia Says:


Sounds exactly like 'a sissy' to me.

kmdharrington Says:


Going to St. Francis of Assisi School, I know no one makes that connection about a school name and I doubt anyone would do it with a person name because it is pronounced like A-cece versus Ass-is-ee.

HatGirl Says:


If you named your child this when people ask how to spell it then the little girl would have to say assisi.

CocoWhite Says:


True, but I don't think those three sneaky letters are as easy to spot in those names as this one. With Assisi, it's right in your face, right at the very front of the name. But I never actually even realized "ass" was in Cassandra or Massimo.

Theodora_Phoenix Says:


Good point, indefendi! You're rght. : )

Guest Says:


Never hurt Cassandra. Or Massimo. Etc.

CocoWhite Says:


Yep. That's the way it is nowadays, unfortunately. But names like this could still be usable as middles, I think.

Theodora_Phoenix Says:


Wouldn't you think that the first three letters of this name would immediately rule it out for children these days?
