Sarita is a Sanskrit word, synonym of river. Sari in Sanskrit means flow and Sarita means something that flows. A feminine name. [noted -ed]

I gave my daughter this name. It was always my "play" name when I was a little girl. It's pronounced sa-ree-tah. It means princess and I think it's very feminine. And my daughter has lived up to this name, I might add.

I like this name. It's much better than plain old Sarah, and it's really cute with the nickname Rita!

This is my name! Since childhood I was told the story of the meaning behind the name. My parents had a love for Cornwall and this name had an old Cornish connection dating back to the Spanish influence on the area. It has the Spanish ending 'ita' meaning 'little' - like 'senorita' for example. The 'ita' is added to the Hebrew name Sarah (a Biblical name, which was important to my parents) making 'little Sarah'. Sarah means 'Princess' and therefore this version of the name means 'little princess' - usually that is cue for the 'aaah's! I was my parents' firstborn and still get 'little princess' in my birthday cards in my mid-40's. :)

I have since heard of the Indian version so the name seems to have 2 separate origins. This is the one that was behind my being named Sarita and, unsurprisingly, my favourite etymology!
