My best friend in elementary school had this name, and she used a more Spanish pronunciation: "saw-rye-ee". I like this name. :)

We say it like "sorry" and it's beautiful.

One of my friends in band, Sarai, is Peurto Rican and pronounces it suh-RYE.

I think it's more exotic than plain old Sarah.

Sarai looks prettier than Sarah.

This seems like a nice alternative to the plain Sarah.

Pronounced "sar:eye".

I always heard it ser-ay-i, or ser-ay-uh.
-- John324  4/15/2008
I've always pronounced it like [ser-AY] after I heard about the name through a friend.

I absolutely love this name! It is not one of those common names that everyone has. The one downfall I find is that I constantly have to tell people how to pronounce it and they still can't. If it wasn't my name I would name my first daughter Sarai.

One of my friends is named Sarai, and I think that it's really pretty compared to Sarah. Even though she pronounces it the same way.

Pronounced "sah-rie".

Sarai means quarrelsome, and Sarah means Princess. The bible says that she was the most beautiful in all the land so beautiful that Abraham said that they were cousins so the pharaoh wouldn't kill him to take her for his wife. My daughter Sarai gets a lot of compliments.

Croatian form of this name is Saraja pronounced sahr-EYE-ah.

In "The Five Books of Moses: A Translation with Commentary", which is the Torah translated into English by Robert Alter, the commentary offers another explanation to the origin of the name Sarai, other than the possible meaning of "contentious". "The only difference between Sarai and Sarah is that the former reflects an archaic feminine suffix, the latter, the normative feminine suffix: both versions of the name mean "princess"". Robert Alter is a professor of the Hebrew language so his interpretation of the name is likely to be accurate. [noted -ed]

I can't say I like this name. The questionable meaning solidifies my feeling. Singer Brandy Norwood has a daughter named Sarai, but she spells it Sy'rai. Norwood's spelling is a bit more updated and less boring. IMO.

Wow, I didn't know this was a real name. I know someone with this name, and I always thought her parents made it up as a "creative" form of Sarah or something. I honestly don't know how she pronounces it, because most teachers say it like Sarah E, and she says that it's correct. It sounds really ridiculous to be honest, I'm pretty sure it's more like Sair-eye, which sounds pretty cool.
