Just that really. smile

I know Sadie is traditionally a shortening of Sarah, but think it's considered more of a standalone name now (I don't know any Sarahs who get called Sadie...)

Which do you prefer?

Sadie. But I love Sarah too.

Sarah all the way. Sadie sounds like sadist.

Sadie sounds like a bitchy spoilt brat. :-)

I love Biblical names, so it has to be Sarah for me.
I also think it sounds fresher - there are loads of girls with '-ie' names around atm, and whilst Sarah was very popular in the 70s and 80s, it's been out of vogue for a while now. She won't have any others in her class, and if I met a baby Sarah I would think it was a refreshing, sophisticated, and strong choice.
I also like Sara. Although DP doesn't like Sarah or Sara fool so no chance of us ever using either.

I have a Sarah known as Sadie! I absolutely love Sadie but thought I'd give her options. My name can't be shortened, no nicknames etc - dull.

Not that keen on Sadie but prefer it to Sarah which is dull, dull dull (I am a Sarah btw. Boooooooring).

Sadie, by a country mile.

Sarah, Sara or seraphine/a.
There is an old 60s/70s number called " Sadie, the cleaning lady."

Sarah, you could use Sally as well (which is lovely)

CPtart Mon 19-Dec-16 19:42:59

Sarah. Too many i.e. ending names about.

Sarah is such a pretty name. V common in the 80s so was a bit dull then - but not now! Go for it!

Sarah is beautiful
