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

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!

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.

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.

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.

This is an anagram of Sarah.

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.
