My name is Sara Ann. Is there a different pronounciations for the different spelling...h or without the h? I thought they were pronounced the' 'S.AIR.A'? I did not like my name as a child cause I could never find anything with the correct spelling, but I like it now. All the other people I know with this name all seem to be very strong willed people, and very determind...and are all also known to be extremely moody at times. Not sure if this has to do with the name but It's a joke to all the'sara's I know.

1/22/2023 1:11:46 PM

My name is Sara and It's starting to grow on me but It's just so common. And people almost never check the'spelling since It's so common, so it often gets an h tacked on the end.

This is my name, and I absolutely hate it. It's not unique, It's not pretty, and It's always hard to get people to say it right. My middle name's Kathryn, and I wish my parents would have just made Kathryn my first name. For those of you considering, baby names for your future children, please take the time to pick a name for your child that is a nice, uncommon name. Who wants to have the'same name as hundred million other people? I wish my parents would have taken more time to choose mine, since now I'm stuck with it.

1/31/2022 2:27:00 PM

We're considering it for our next son. I really like it, and don't know anyone with this name

1/31/2022 9:52:30 AM

My name is Sara too. And yes, just like most of you some people spell it with an H and it realli annoys me. Even if I say "ther's no H" they still spell it wrong afterwords. Well, I think Sara is a realli awesome name to have. I know that it is hebrew, and that it means "princess". ooh yeah, we are the princesses.

1/27/2022 7:51:54 PM

My name is always spelt wrong which i find very annoying, i pronounce it 'Sarah', i feal It'should have been pronounced Sara origionally.

12/15/2021 5:54:54 PM

My name is Sara. Have never liked or disliked the name. I'm indifferent to it, maybe because It's very commmon and to me seems WASP-y, which I am not. I don't know if it fits my personality and I'm thinking of changing my name. The thing that I like about it is that I was born in the late 70's when'the name was very popular, so I feel my name represents that time period well and has significance, as the name Isn't as common now as it was then.

11/18/2021 5:17:06 AM

sara is wayyyy to original, i dont like the name. there are 7 saras in my class! sevin!

11/14/2021 2:21:36 PM

10/7/2021 3:56:06 PM

My name is Sara and I like It'sometimes, and other times I don't. Anyways, the name is from the bible and means princess. My name always makes me think of Sarah Lincoln. How many times have I been introduced to a person who then will start singing the'song "Sara" from the 80ies. A lot. :)

9/20/2021 5:40:30 PM

It bugs me that people spell it with an 'h' sometimes, but my name's really more like 'sada' like, a cross between a 'd' and a rolled 'r'. my friend calls me sarai (Sar-eye) though. It's great because It's not so popular anymore!

9/18/2021 5:17:06 AM

My name is Sara, I'm moroccan. At school everyone either calls me "Sarah" or "Zara" but I love Sara, the way It's said and spelt. It'seems original and I'm the only Sara at my high school :)

9/13/2021 9:04:48 AM
