Comments for SAPPHIRA:

I love this name. :-) I find that people can't pronounce it, though. I came across another meaning to Saphira (my spelling of the name): One that weaves or tells a tale.

In the book Eragon, the main character's blue dragon is named Sapphira.

In Christopher Paolini's books "Eragon" and "Eldest" the dragon's name is Saphira and the name is meant to mean only "Saphire".

I love this name. I know a girl named Sapphira and we all call her Saph.

I got my daughter's name from this name. Hers is Saphara which is pronounced sa-fair-a.

There is a novel by Eudora Welty entitled "Sapphira and the Slave Girl".

I've always pronounced this name sa-FEAR-rah.

I like this name, it really sounds terrific. Although, the one thing that keeps me from using it is the fact that it's the name of the dragon from Eragon (well, not exactly, but it's super-close).

The name has a really cool sound to it, whether you pronounce it as ''sa-FIE-ra'' or ''sa-FEE-ra''. Paradoxically enough, it also sounds like a stripper name, even if an exceptionally cool one. The name sounds so much like a pseudonym, and I have a hard time imagining a person with this as her real name. It's not very conventional, that's for sure.

I think this is a really pretty name. I don't know if I would name my daugher Sapphira, but I like it a lot.

It's a beautiful name. I do like it. I agree completely with slight night shiver: The pronunciation of it is wonderful, but sadly it's a bit of a stripper name.
-- CutieCupcake  8/17/2008
It's quite a beautiful name. I'd like to use it myself, but Christian fundamentalists will freak out because the biblical Sapphira was killed for lying. I personally don't think it's anywhere near as bad as, say, Jezebel. And I don't worry about it being a "stripper name".

I love this name, it's so pretty and unique.

Probably means beautiful or precious; comes from the Hebrew word sapir, meaning gem or jewel.
Related to the word "sapphire." Sapphires are highly prized gems, most famous for their beautiful vibrant blue variety but also sold in every other color under the name "rainbow sapphire" or "fancy sapphire." These come in all the basic colors: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple, pink, brown, white, black, and grey, as well as many hues and shades such as peach, teal, and magenta. Some sapphires are identified as "star sapphires" because they display a starburst design within them, making them always look as if they were radiating or reflecting light.

Very beautiful, soft but strong; nickname Saffy is cute and sassy.
-- user  10/28/2011
This is the only name I've ever seen on here with an approval rating of higher than 75 percent.
-- user  10/28/2011
Someone told me it sounds like the name of a kicka*s warrior princess haha :)

I think this is such a pretty name!
-- Ryry1996  3/3/2012
So much better than Sapphire, at least with this spelling. Safira is good too. Saphira, however, reminds me of that horrible book Eragon.
-- Buneary  11/21/2012
I think, for the sake of euphony, this name has to be pronounced "suh-FEER-uh". "suh-FIE-ruh" just sounds like you're trying too hard, as well as giving the name a great big dose of "Ghetto queen".
