    Sanna is the Scandinavian version of Susannah - but what do youall think of use ing Sanna to honor both a Suzy and a Donna? It seems like it is a combination of both names so do you think this could work or is that just cheesy? Also, do you think the name Sanna goes with my sons name Callum?

    Sanna almost sounds like Santa to me. I just don't find it pleasing to the ear. I don't think it matches Callum well.

    I see this name & say Sanna like it rhymes with Anna (ann-uh). Not sure if that's the proper pronunciation.

    I think it could work as a Suzy/Donna smush with legitimacy behind it.

    Do you have Scandinavian heritage as well?

    I think it goes fine with your sons name.

    I think that where I live no one would give you a weird look for this name, but in more rural areas people might be like, "Savannah?" "Santa?" "Sandra?" so if you can handle that I say go for it, but that unfamiliar aspect might make it a tougher name to wear.

    I'm torn by this name. Upon hearing it, I think of either the word 'sana' which is 'healthy' in Spanish. Or my mind wants to add onto it and say san-itation.
    So yeah, not for me.

    I think other good ideas to honor both of those names would be:

    Sonya/ Sonja
    Dana or Danna (Day-na and Dan-uh)

    Yes, stretches... but they have similar letters and sounds to Suzy and Donna without being as out there.

    Daisy connects Suzy & Donna and is a really nice choice.
