It's my name, I'm a Sara as in Sarah but without the h. i love that it's spelt without the h.

There was a little girl in the park recently and her mum called out 'sara' and I thought, oh how lovely to hear that name again on a young girl.

Hi, not sure - might be Greek - saw it on "Home and Away" years ago - the actress who played Sophie was called Rebekah Elmagloglu or something in real life, and I think she was of Greek background!

My dear friend is called Sara and she is very clever (Phd) -it's pretty too - her mum was Italian

Iota · 24/02/2008 17:47

I knew a Sara (rhymes with Zara) over 20 yrs ago - I have always thought that it is a lovely name

Lulumama · 24/02/2008 17:48

geogteach · 24/02/2008 17:51

Perfect, (its my name too)

LazyLinePainterJane · 24/02/2008 18:15

Well, a Sara may have to always say "without an H" but as a Sarah I can say that I have always had to say "yes...with an H"....and it is surprising how many people can't spell it. Go for it!

minster · 27/02/2008 20:58

Yep I also have to keep saying 'Sarah with an h'. I love both names though. If I wasn't called Sarah then I would have used it for dd. Hated it as a kid as there were 9,999 of them in my class alone, but love it now.

Sara's lovely though, although it looks unfinished to me. It needs an h...

great name. Classic but not common. Good choice
