    I adore Jessamine. I'm lukewarm about Natassia and uncertain about the correct pronunciation.

    I actually recently watched an episode of a horrible new reality show (Vanderpump Rules) that had a girl named Nastassia on it. She goes by the nn Stassi. I actually really like the name although the girl was really quite nasty. I prefer it to Jessamine.

    My DH was watching a movie and an actress from it was named Natassia. He instantly fell in love with the name! I am still more for Jessamine, though.

    @Blade - Willow and Sage are on our list for middle names, but I was told that Pink named her daughter Willow Sage, so that combination would appear that I'm trying to mimic her.

    Emm... I do not consider myself a Russian name expert but I live in Ukraine and I can say. No one who is really familiar with Russian culture will use nicknames as full names here. You may know a man who goes by Sasha everywhere but officially his name is Aleksandr for sure. They may never use their full name but have it in passport.
    Using a nickname as a full name is popular in US and, of course, there is nothing wrong, but you can't say Nastassia is a Russian given name. Anastasia, for sure, but Nastassia sounds all American to me.
    I am not against Nastassia, but you should know it isn't a Russian full name. Actually Annouchka, Mashenka, Sasha, Fedya etc are not given name too. But since we are in US(UK, Austarlia) ,use the name you like.
