    Старая русская уменьшительная форма имени Александр - Алексашка -> Сашка -> Саша.

    I can sound out what you just wrote, but unfortunately, have no clue what it means.

    An old form of a nickname for Aleksander was "Aleksashka", which became "Sashka," and then "Sasha"
    Yay! I broke 200 posts!

    А вот что говорит словарь русских имен о моем имени:
    Александр
    От греческого alexo - защищать и aner - муж, мужчина.
    Производные: Александрушка, Алексаня, Саня, Санюра, Санюта, Санюха, Санюша, Алексаха, Алексаша, Саша, Сашуха, Сашуля, Сашуня, Сашута, Сашура, Шура, Шуруня, Алекся, Алексюха, Алексюша, Аля, Ася; Лекса (Лёкса), Лексаня, Лексаша.
    Вот ни фига себе...
    Правда это уже не словарь говорит, а я
