Personal experiences with the name Saskia: | Edit

I found it funny when I lived in New-Zealand they couldn't pronounce my name, so I shortened it to KIA and apparently it's a Maoriname too :)

My friend is named Saskia. Most of the time we call her Sa. We pronounce it SA-ski-a, not ZA-ski-a. My friend Saskia is German and her family says that Saskia used to mean knife in German.
