The name is originally derived from Persian mythology. She was basically a demigod Sahar and her brother Satar. One to rule the ocean and one to rule the skies. Sahar in Persian translates to dawn, it is used in arabic and in Hebrew as well. It was DERIVED from Persian mythology. Their are more to a country's culture, people and language than what wikipedia says or the internet. I am Persian thru and thru, I've read many many books not even allowed in the states that would teach anyone who was interested more about my country. With that being said, we should all get along and learn about each other and not argue arab vs. Hebrew vs. Persian. Each side is valid as languages evolve.

My stepmom has an Egyptian friend named Sahar. I've always thought the name was really pretty, but growing up all the teachers mispronounced/misspelled her name as "Sarah." I imagine that gets annoying.

This is an anagram of Sarah.

Argue all you like, this is the linguistic evidence:
Hebrew IS a middle-eastern language, most closely related to Arabic. Sahar means a time just before dawn in Arabic (fajr being dawn), but in North African Arabic Sahar means wilderness/desert, hence Sahara desert. Sahar is a borrowed Arabic word which is also used in Persian and means dawn. Sahar is used poetically in Hebrew to refer to the crescent moon. (in Arabic/Urdu this is Shahar, which means dawn in Hebrew! As the two words Shahar and Sahar moon/dawn are cleary related.)

I should also add the pronunciation is sa-HAR with a highly aspirated H sound (puff of air), and in typical Arabic the r is rolled.

According to Bantam-Megiddo Hebrew-English dictionary, the word Sahar (sin-hei-reysh) means "moon" in Hebrew. Of course, often sound combinations/words are used in different languages for different meanings.

It's NOT Hebrew. Even though it might mean "something" in Hebrew it's Middle Eastern. And Persian, Arabic same thing, the language is pretty much the same. And it is of Middle Eastern origin! There!

SAHAR is a Persian name meaning the dawn. SAHAR is not Arabic. And Persian is not Arabic.

Even though they are not the same they are kind of alike, my mom learned Persian and she said it was like some other Middle Eastern language, I don't know if it was Arabic, sorry.

My name is Sahar, and it is a Persian name, not Arabic. "SEHR" means "bewitchery" in Arabic not "sahar".
