The less popular version of Sarah ranked in the top 20, this nice name means “princess.” But it wasn’t always that way -- in the Bible, Abraham’s wife was originally named Sarai, which means…contentious. Fittingly, Sarai lobbied the big guy to change her name, and she ended up as the Sarah that so many moms and dads love today. Remember, Sara is a lot more common than the rankings suggest, because there are also all those Sarahs to contend with. Sarah’s always been popular – it’s barely been out of the top hundred for more than a century – and peaked at number five in the ‘80s. Despite its wide usage, it’s still a classic, fashionable name. If you want something a little different though, try a variation like Sadie, Sally or, of course, the obvious fallback – Zahara.
