I named my now 6 month old daughter Farrah Elizabeth and I love it. Most everyone says It's beautiful. I'm just worried the MTV star will soon make my daughters class rooms full of Farrahs. I sure hope not. I haven't personally met one yet.

MY NAME IS FARRAH. It's pretty cool. I live in Egypt, and I am half Egyptian, half American, so my name can be pronounced like Farrah Fawcett and like Farah the arabic way.

My name is Farrah and I'm a Malaysian native :) I have a sister named Fatin, and brothe's named Falique, Farique, and Fazrique! We're the "F" siblings! lol After living in many places around the world, I found that outside Malaysia, this name is typically deemed unique, but in Malaysia this name is very common, nothing special about it... Like the typical "Sarah" or "John"... ironic, huh❤️ lol Nevertheless, I love my name!! :)

My name is Farrah. Oh yes...I would be so rich for every person that'says "like Farrah Fawcett❤️" or assumes I was named after her'since I was born in 77.

I'm very glad it has not gained popularity yet...hoping no one catches on for at least a few more years:)

My name is Farrah, I was born in 1988. Though I was often incorrectly called Sarah while growing up, I love my unique name and get compliments on it all the time. At times people have also mispronounced it placing the emphasis on the "rah". I could retire now if I had a dime for the number of times i've heard "oh like Farrah Fawcett❤️"

06/24/2023 12:45:00

i've only ever met 2 other women with my name. One lady ıFarahı worked at a hotel I was staying at and another was my Waitress one night, although her name was spelt Fara. (Mine is Farrah) Apparently it means Beautiful or Good looking in Arabic (haha cant complain about a name with a meaning like that!). I like my name, It's not very common and almost everyone I'meet says It's a beautiful name. My only complaint, people usually think its Sarah or instantly make a Farrah Fawcett reference! Regardless I am proud to be Farrah and cant imagine having any other name. <3 Hello to all the Farrah, Farah and Faras out there!

06/18/2023 03:38:02

06/17/2023 19:41:56

I'm half persian but grew up in the gulf states & my name is farrah. Farrah is simply the arabic way of spelling it. the persian way is Farah or Farahnaz. Farrah also (if its pronounced correctly - something westerners can't do) has a very hard sound, almost like the'spanish trill of r, but the persian version is much smoother, less harsh.

06/10/2023 22:49:38

I named my daughter Farrah, (born Oct.17/06) While I was pregnant I was shopping and a clerk had Farrah on her name tag, I asked her if she liked her name, and she did very much... It'stuck with me. I am very happy that I went with my gut, my Farrah is so sweet, it is a feminine and soft name. A friend from Morocco told me it means happiness in Arabic and I like that.

06/02/2023 14:06:04

05/15/2023 14:57:58

My name is Farrah. It's a little annoying to talk to people on the phone, they always say Sarah so i've had to get in the habit of (depending on the age of the other person) saying "Like Farrah Fawcett" or "like 'Farrah' from teen mom" (as much as the latter makes my skin crawl to say). But I have yet to meet another Farrah my age (23) so yay for unique factor, but I wouldn't have picked the name personally.

05/06/2023 00:15:48

My name is Farrah Daye and my whole life everyone called me Farrah Fawcett, but I actually was named after one of my mom's friends from high school. I LOVE my name and it makes me unique and people remember the name Farrah!

I am pregnant with my second daughter and my husband and I have chosen'to name her Farrah. We love the way that It'sounds and the meaning of the name. When people ask what are you going to name your baby girl we say "Farrah" and of course they say like "Farrah Fawcett" and I say "NO!", like Farrah Nicole. (Nicole will be her middle name.)

01/25/2023 13:47:12

I love my name (Farrah). Even'though you tell people It's with F as in "Frank" they still spell It'sarah or Sarrah. I'must say that i've gotten "randomly searched" at the airport quite often since 9/11...I think It's because of my name.

12/29/2022 04:21:26

I am pregnant and will be naming my daughter Farrah. Everytime I tell someone her name they say "like Farrah Fawcett❤️" and then I say no, because she's not named after her. I actually was watching an MTV show and one of the character's names was Farrah. I love the name and I do not know anyone with that name. Hopefully my daughter will love it as she gets older.

12/23/2022 19:38:02

My name is Farrah. I was born in 1989. As with everyone else I get mistaken for Sarah a lot, but i've gotten used to it. I'm not sure why the name hasn't been more popular over the years, but I'm glad. I love my name and It's uniqueness.

07/13/2022 08:35:06

My name is Farah too, and i have to say ive never met another Farah, only heard about Farrah Fawcett and Farrah Franklin of course, its awesome to see you all up there! I love our name because everyone says it is exotic. I personally adore that word, we have a beautiful meaning to our name, but the only downside is people thinking you said Sarah or people misspelling my name frequently due to the absence of one 'R' in my spelling. Other than that, I love Farah, its no ordinary name, for no ordinary people!

06/15/2022 06:13:48

My name is Farrah Suzanne and I live in Florida. I think there are two other Farrah's in my city but they are older. My dad was in love with Farrah Fawcett so of course had to name me after her. I love my name and how It's not that common. But, after reading this page I don't feel so special :(

Hey, my real name is Faryn but I prefer Farrah; I like it cause you don't hear it all the time and it is really unique, plus it just fits me.

Haha Anyways love the name Farrah and Faryn ! !

10/11/2021 00:27:18

I am called Farrah, because my Dad is Per'san. I used to hate having an unusual name, and having to spell it to people all the time, but now I enjoy being different, and I love the meaning of the name more than the name itself!

09/30/2021 19:14:06

After flicking through the tv channels late one night (during my pregnancy) when I couldn't sleep, I came across a documentary on the original actresses from Charlie's Angels. My daughter was born in November 2015 and we called her farrah! We live in Edinburgh, Scotland and it is a very unusual name here. We haven't met another Farrah yet. People usually do have to ask twice as they think her name is Sara. But once they hear it again most think it is lovely name and yes they often refer to Farrah Fawcett (which is exactly where I got it from). L. x

09/04/2021 12:48:00

I'm Farrah Rachelle and I LOVE my name. I really love that I never hear it...and when I do I feel a bit jealous.

09/04/2021 04:33:54

I recently had a daughter and named her FARRAH Elyse. I also get people saying, Like Farrah Fawcett". I named her Farrah because is was unique and also because my son and her'share intials. I hope she will appreciate the uniqueness when she is older.

07/07/2021 10:33:00

My name is Farrah Maharani. My Dad gave me that name coz he adore Farrah Fawcett so much. Some people around me have the'same name like me but they just had one 'R'on their name (Farah) and i just smile coz i was different. I hate when people on the phone thinks that my name is Sarah or Tara. I love my name'so much and knowing that there's a lot of Farrah out there It's kinda funny. i feel special and unique coz of my name and i hope all the Farrah here feel the'same way too..
