Sara is whimsical and evocative of myrrh and Turkish Delights.IMPORTANT TO NOTE: It is the *American*-English way of pronouncing Sarah the same as Sara - just search YouTube Sara Pronunciation and read the comments, in many other countries they are different sounding names.
In England (and many other countries worldwide) Sarah and Sara are pronounced differently. Sara rhymes with Lara, Sarah rhymed with fairer. I love both of these names.

I have changed my mind, I now like Sarah and Sara equally.I think Sarah has more of a classic feel, while Sara feels more modern and youthful :)
I like this name a lot, it's pretty. Sarah seems like an older spelling for it.
I chose the name Sara for my daughter. I'm in love with this name since I was a child. Does someone know when is the name day for Sara is in Danmark?
I used to prefer this spelling but, now I think that it looks like it is missing something. Still, this is a gorgeous name!
Gorgeous name, I am also fond of Clara and Lara.
I think this can be said Sehr-ah or Saa-rah and it should cause no problems. I like both Sarah and Sara. Australians tend to say Sara like Saa-rah but if a wearer of the name corrected my pronunciation I wouldn't mind because it's their name.
Actually, Sara can be pronounced like Sarah in the UK (the comedienne Sara Pascoe is an example) as some people consider it to be an alternative spelling to Sarah (and hence the same pronunciation) rather than a different version of Sarah that may be pronounced differently. But either way, it comes from Sarah and therefore has the same meaning. It raises an interesting question - why would an h on the end affect the way the first syllable is pronounced?The pronunciation of this name is always going to cause debate. But really, it’s an individual thing and the right way is just however the bearer chooses it to be pronounced.I’m from England and knew a Sara, pronounced like Sarah, who I’m fairly sure was also English.
In England Sara and Sarah are different names. Sara rhymes with Tara, Lara, Zara, Cara etc.
I like the name, it's prettier than Sarah because in my country it's pronounced sah-rah and sair-ah sounds too different.

Also Japanese.
Homely name.
I feel uncomfortable without the h. And even with the h, the name itself is too boring.
I changed my mind. This name is pretty cute, and I like both Sara AND Sarah equally the same.
My name is Sara. I was named after my great grandmother whose name was "Sarah." She died the year I was born (1989). My grandmother insisted that my name be without the "h" because she disliked that spelling. I have never really cared for my name. It was popular in the 90's when I was in school. My last name was Johnson, which is a common last name. There were like 4 Sara(h) Johnson's in my class alone. We had to spell out our middle names so the teachers would know whose work was whose.
I like this name better with no H cause H’s are EW!
Quite a gorgeous whimsical name with international appeal.
It seems Americans pronounce Sarah and Sara the same way. In England they are different names.
In Britain we generally pronounce it to rhyme with Cara, Clara and Zara.
Sarah is sair-ah
Sara is saah-ra.
I like this spelling better than Sarah. Sara looks less fussy and less puritanical, too. It's modern and exciting, but still has the oldtimey joy found in Sarah.
I had four Sara and Sarah’s in my graduating class of 1992!
A lot better than Sarah in my opinion.
Sara to me looks incomplete. I prefer Sarah.
Sara is pronounced: SARE-AH.
Sara or Sarah is a feminine given name found in many different areas of the world. It is a consistently popular given name across Europe and North America, and the Middle East—being commonly used as a female first name by Jews, Christians and Muslims alike, and remaining popular also among non-religious members of cultures influenced by these religions. In Arabic Sara translates to "joy" and "delight" In Hebrew Sara means "Princess". While frequently, the name refers to Sarah, the wife of Abraham in the Hebrew Bible, the Christian Old Testament, and the Islamic Quran. In Hebrew, and Persian, it means woman of high rank, often simply translated as "Princess". In Modern Hebrew, "sarah" (שרה) is the word for "woman minister".
Sara is also Romanian. The popularity chart for Romania should be a further indicator of that. In fact, Sara is one of the most common female names in Romania. [noted -ed]Romanian Pronunciation: SA-ra.
Sara is also Occitan, Galician, Bulgarian, Albanian, Turkish, and Amharic.Scripts: Сара (Bulgarian), ሳራ (Amharic)Occitan Pronunciation: SA-raGalician Pronunciation: SA-raAlbanian Pronunciation: SA-raTurkish Pronunciation: SA-rah.
Very pretty, but for me it sounds like a name for a cat, I think it's because my grandmother's kitty was named Sara.
Also Romanian: [noted -ed]
You'll find numerous bearers on social media.
So pretty! Simple, and can be used in many languages. I love the biblical association. I'm planning to use this name in a story of mine. :)
The Ballad of Sara Berry, anyone? From 35 mm?
Love it! Love it! LOVE IT! I honestly don't prefer Sarah nor do I prefer Sara, either is great. Sara feels like a more delicate and simple name.
I prefer this international version over the English spelling with an "H".
I prefer Sarah.
Americans pronounce Sara in a very strange way. Pretty much everywhere else (to my knowledge) says it Saah-ra, not Sare-ah. They're different names!
I feel Sara is too simple and modern. Sarah is a more classic name. Just my opinion.
There’s much more light in Sarah.
I think this spelling is more modern, and for some reason I like it better. Beautiful name nonetheless!
I prefer this to Sarah.

This is my older sister's name. My mom wanted to name her first daughter this because she used to baby-sit a girl named Sara and fell in love with the name. My parents preferred to spell it without the "h" because they thought it was too old-fashioned. My sister really likes it, and she tells me people frequently comment they prefer this spelling. I like the association with Sara Crewe, the heroine in "A Little Princess" because it's my favorite book. Not the most original name, but it does have solid history in many cultures.
Worst spelling.
People often seem to forget that adding an extra letter to a name, like Ann vs Anne, Rachel vs Rachael, Barbra vs Barbara, Megan vs Meghan etc, is usually just to make the name more complete and prettier, and not to change the pronunciation. So Sara and Sarah are the same.
I might be the only one who likes the original, this one is bland and boring.
Sara is an amazing name. A young girl needs a name that inspires and shows power. This is perfect.
My BFF name is Sara and she fits the name beautifully. It truly is a great name.
Sarai or Sarah whatever, was an old old woman who had a baby in the Bible. That would be enough weirdness to scare me away from this name. Besides, it sounds low rent.
In 2018, 29 is the most common age for an American (U.S.) Sara who is registered female with the Social Security Administration. It is the 130th most common female first name for living U.S. citizens.
I like this spelling more than Sarah. To me, it kind of gives it a younger vibe. It's perfect for a girl. A lot of girls want to be princesses. And I like Sara Crewe from A Little Princess.
Sara is a character in the book The Story Girl. She is a very good storyteller.
I prefer this spelling, but I would spell it with an h at the end because most people would spell it that way.

Sara from Toonami, a sexy AI lady! Sara is a pretty sexy name thanks to her!

Sara (pronounced Sah-ra) is also a common Persian name that means "Purity" and "Guilelessness".
The Persian "Sara" has nothing to do with the Biblical Sarah. Indeed, it is not of Semitic origin at all. Persian is an Indo-European language. The word /Sara/ in Persian means 'pure, uncontaminated'. In Iran and other Persian/Iranian speaking countries (such as Afghanistan and Tajikistan) it is used as a feminine name.
Sara is the second name of my daughter. I regret using Sara as her first name and not putting on the "h". I prefer Sarah with an h. Her first name is Meryam but I call her Sara.
This spelling is so much better then Sarah!
As a Sara, I really like my name. I've never met another Sara and have only met one Sarah. The downside of having the name without the h is that, in my experience, people always assume it has an h so I've stopped being 'Sara' I'm now 'Sara-no-h'... It's annoying, but I love my name.
I am a Sara and honestly, I like my name very much. Sarah is a more common spelling but they both have the same meaning. I have only met one other Sara.
This spelling to me isn't extremely feminine sounding, so it suits my part tomboyish personality.
Sara is the name of Ed's bratty little sister from the show, Ed Edd n Eddy.
Overused name.
The name is also rather common in Iceland. [noted -ed]
I was going to be named Sara/Sarah but my parents called me Bebe instead.
This name isn't a favorite of mine, but I prefer this spelling to Sarah.
This is my name and I think it's very pretty.
To the folks who are commenting on the pronunciation of Sarah vs. Sara... what?! They are pronounced the same!
Mostly the same as Sarah, although it can still have a bit of difference.
In Arabic Sara (سارة) is pronounced "SAA-rah", sounding different from "Sare-ah". [noted -ed]
Sara is a fictional character in Sonic the Hedgehog: The Movie.
I don't like this name at all. It is plain and lacks anything special to me. I don't know why people like it so much. It's so common - I know a ton of Sarah's. I have an aunt Sarah (she's in her 50's), she named her daughter Sarah (who's in her 30's) and my other cousin married a 'Sara' (without the 'h'). I went to school with at least 5 Sarahs (grade school, middle school, high school) and have worked with 2 Sarah's. I have another cousin who named his daughter Sarah Alexis (she's 8) and another friend who named her daughter Sarah Daniella. This name is really, really super popular. I dislike Sarai/Sarahi and the nickname Sarita even more.I don't like this name in the slightest.
I'll never for the life of me understand why this name is so mega popular, or why it's liked. I think it's boring. So short and plain. I don't like it at all.
Sara is also the Georgian form of Sarah.In Georgian, Sara is written as: სარა.
Sara will appear on the storm naming list in 2018. It was chosen to replace Sandy, which was retired after 2012.
I prefer Sarah to Sara, it's easier to say, unless you pronounce it the same.
This is my favorite spelling of Sarah! It sounds so much prettier without the H.
Although this name is commonly used (And I absolutely DO NOT like common names), I would definitely name a daughter this because of the Fleetwood Mac song!
Sara Smile was a popular song by Hall and Oates.
I first heard that song in 1978-79 and fell in love with the name. In 1996, I gave the name to my daughter.
2010, I still think the name is breathtakingly beautiful.
This name isn't a variation of Sarah, but vice versa. Just like Rachel (Rey-chel) originated from the biblical equivalent and Dinah originated from Dina. Sara from the Torah was actually called saRAI at first, then became saRA or SAra.
A common name in its own right, I prefer the spelling Sara much more than the traditional Sarah, of which I know *way too many*. Despite the beauty of Sarah, it can get tiresome when you know so many people with the name. I still like Sara, though: simple, and the sound is beautiful.
Also Croatian.
I like this spelling more than the one with an H, but no matter how you spell it I love the name. It has a great meaning and a sweet, simple sound. It works on anyone from a newborn baby to an old woman. My favorite combination is Sara Violet.
My sister's name. She was named without the 'h' because our parents thought it looked too old-fashioned, and she loves her name and the spelling. The only possible downside it how common it is. I think it is a very pretty name, though.
"Sara" is the name of 3 songs of note
- a 1976 song by Bob Dylan, released on his album "Desire", as a tribute to his wife
- a 1979 Stevie Nicks-penned and sung song by Fleetwood Mac
- a 1985 song by Starship, arguably the most successful of these 3, which hit number 1 on the Billboard Hot 100. The lead singer was Mickey Thomas.
Note that in Finnish, "Sara" means plants of genus Carex, so can be considered a nature-related name as well.
I love this name, but it is WAY too overused. I know like eight Sara(h)s in school alone, and like another three outside of school! However, it is a really really pretty name. And it's even prettier without the "h" at the end of it! XDD
I think this spelling is MUCH prettier than "Sarah". I think the H makes it ugly (no offense).
My name is Sara (pronounced like SAIR-uh) and I've only met one other person with this name and they had the H at the end. I quite like it like that, though Sara without the H seems a bit more modern? I've no idea.
To me Sara is pronounced differently to Sarah;
Sara = Sah-rah
Sarah = Sair-ruh
Just from experience with people I've met named Sara or Sarah.
This name shouldn't be listed as a cognate when it is just a matter of spelling. [noted -ed]
Sara Fielding is the heroine of Lisa Kelypas's novel "Dreaming of You." It is often considered the pinnacle of her literary career.
I like the name in general, but as an American name I like it better with the "H" because I know more people with it spelled like that.
Sara is pronunced both "SER-ə" and "SAR-ə". The pronunciation is simply determined by which country you're in or the origin, the spelling has in most cases nothing to do with it.Because in some countries they pronunce it "SAR-ə" even though it has a H in the end.
Dr. Sara Tancredi, a character in the TV series "Prison Break".
I pronounce it more like Cara or Tara than Sarah.
Actress Marlee Matlin and Kevin Grandalski have a daughter Sara Grandalska, born 19th January, 1996.
This name is also used in Hebrew, common among French-Israeli's. It's pronounced Sah-rah. Stress on the first a.
In my opinion the way you spell the name has a lot to do with which country or language you are planning to use the name in.
I'm from Norway and I prefer the spelling Sara here, that's the most used spelling, however in English I would have prefered the spelling Sarah.
Sara Stanley was a character from the "Avonlea" tv series, and she was played by actress Sarah Polley.
One of my best friends is called Sara. She is the only person I have ever met who had her name spelled without the h in the ending. It's a lovely name and I like it the best without the h which in my eyes is unnecessary.
I knew so many Sara/Sarahs growing up, probably because I knew a lot of Christian families. I like this name a lot more than I used to, and maybe it's because I hear it less these days. (The 'h' is a must. It completes the name.)
I love this name, but I would pronounce it Sah - rah, because if there is a name with an h, why steal another! I think Sah - rah is very pretty and I love the book A Little Princess.
This is nowadays a common little girls' name in Finland, probably top 10 or something like that. The traditional form here is Saara, Sara is more a newcomer. The word also means a kind of hay-looking plant.
I have a friend named Sara. She pronounces it SER-ah. I have another friend in New York named Sara, but she pronounces it SAH-rah. I think it depends on where you're from to pronounce your name, because they get angry if you pronounce it the other way. And it is a beautiful name. Bless all that bear it.
My boyfriend's sister is named Sara. They live in Morocco. I admit it was funny to hear such a familiar name to my American ears, after meeting Khadija, Fatima, Aicha, Zohara.

I love this version of the name, Sara.
My name is Sara and I used to not like it but I'm starting to like it more, though I only know one other Sara but quite a few Sarahs.Something people may not know about the name:
One of the Nuremberg Laws created by the NAZI's was that Jews without "Jewish sounding" names had to use the middle name Sara(h) for women and Israel for men.
Also means "Queen" in Scottish.
I'm sorry but I don't really like this spelling. I think when it is spelled with the 'h' it is prettier.
I love this name! It is the name of my best friend and to me it is the correct spelling. I personally think it looks kind of strange with the "h" at the end.
I like Sara but prefer Sarah. When one is accustomed to seeing names with 'h's on the end, they just look incomplete without them.
My best friend's name is Sara. I definitely like the name better without an "H".
It's pronounced sa-rah in Italian, too. My Italian teacher is from Italy and there's a girl named Sarah in my class. We think it's funny, because he says Sarah the Italian way.
How you pronounce it depends on your country of origin, and has very little to do with the origin of the name itself. If you are using it based on its English history then Sair-uh is an entirely appropriate way to say it. If you are going with a Romance language for its origin it should be Sahr-uh. Different strokes for different folks, and no need to throw stones. My best friend in first grade had this name and pronounced it Sair-uh. Why is anyone offended by how someone else pronounces a name? If you name the kid, you can pronounce it any way you want.
Sara is beautiful but I much prefer the spelling "Sarah". (No offense)
It annoys me to no end when people pronounce Sara and Sarah the same! I think it's just an American tradition but in other countries Sara is "SAR-ra" and Sarah is "SAIR-uh". They are different!
It's of Arabic/Middle Eastern origin too, and in Urdu (sah-rah) it means "everything". It's probably something different in Arabic! Either way I love this name! It's really pretty! And has MANY different great meanings!
Sara Paxton is someone who has this name. She's an actor on Darcy's Wild Life.
A famous bearer is the UK radio presenter, Sara Cox. I have heard her name pronounced like SAH-rah, and like SAIR-ah, so I think there is some confusion.

I love this name. It is biblical, but it is modern as well. I must say that I prefer this spelling to Sarah. The meaning is great too.
My friend Sara kills people when they spell her name wrong, she says they always want to spell it Sarah and she says if it was spelled that way then it would be pronounced S-air-ah-ha.
English should be listed as well.
Listen to the German pronunciation of Sara here:
I don't like this name, I know a girl who has it. Anyway, I think Sarah is better. Here we pronounce it Sa-ra. But it's not the same 'r' as the English use.
My name is Sara, and I pronounce it literally as it is spelt "sa-ra", not like the version with the -h, but still loads of people try to call me Sarah. Both mean princess and there are quite a few people with this name. It is actually a Welsh name as well.
As previously mentioned, this is also the Welsh form of the name.
Sára Saudková is famous photographer, with Samuel Saudek has daughter Sára.
I love this name. Although in my own language Japanese, Sara means "dish" or "new" (but in that case, it is pronounced Sah-ra), it is used for Japanese girls.
My daughter is Sara without the 'h' and I had to battle with my family who used to pronounce it in the English way! We are Italian so 'SARA' it is!
I love this spelling.

I have never heard of this name before I met my future husband, his sister's name is Saralyn. Quite an unusual variation of Sara(h) I thought. Pronounced all in one word as Saralyn, not Sara Lyn.
This is the most beautiful version of the name's spelling. It's the Greek form of "Sarah". The name represents royalty, being that is was the name of the mother of "nations" and "kings of people" (Gen. 17:15). I am most honored to personally know a Princess by this name.
An under-used variation of the popular American name Sarah.
