    Name Meaning

    Biblical name, borne by the wife of Abraham and mother of Isaac. According to the Book of Genesis, she was originally called Sarai (possibly meaning ‘contentious’ in Hebrew), but had her name changed by God to the more auspicious Sarah ‘princess’ in token of a greater blessing (Genesis 17:15, ‘And God said unto Abraham, As for Sarai thy wife, thou shalt not call her name Sarai, but Sarah shall her name be’). This has been one of the most enduringly popular girls' names.
