origin: American


Origin: Hebrew

Meaning: Princess

Oh, Sarah…You’re such a princess. (No, really -- that’s what the name means.) 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. The name’s always been popular -- it’s barely been out of the top hundred for over a century -- and peaked at number three in 1993. 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.
