Saskia

I had always thought my name was the Germanic word for ‘knife’, but I saw just now on www.babynames.com that Saskia is Slavic for ‘protector of mankind’. Interesting…

(I was looking at that site because I needed a name for a character in a story I’m outlining at the moment, and couldn’t think of one right off the top of my head. Don’t worry, I’m not pregnant.)

  1. No offense but I think I’d rather have Doctor Who as my protector (if only because he has a Tardis AND he is cute :-P) I tried to find the meaning of my name but it’s so unique, it’s not in there! :S

      In hebrew my name means “Song; joy”
      In hindu it means “queen”
      In English: Pet form of names in ending in -rina
      In Sanskrit: “Melted; dissolved”
      Apparently it depends on where I am whether I’m royalty or melted. *snicker*
