I couldn't figure out how to pronounce this until I saw the page for it. So I wouldn't use this name.

I agree with Danni, it's such a beautiful name but would be botched mercilessly here. Would it be sacrilege to spell the name Cassiani? Pronunciation would be better but it loses some of its integrity in the process. Cassiana is a lovely variation.

I adore long, feminine Greek names, but I think Cassiane particularly would suffer mispronunciation, and be mistaken for Cassie Ann in the U.S.

I love the four syllable sound of this name! It sounds very regal and exotic. I just love it! Does anyone know of a down side to this name?
