Meaning of Sara

Sara is an indirect Quranic name for girls. It is a common version of the name SarahSara is not standard Arabic but since many people like how it sounds (with two long “a” sounds instead of one long and one short), they use it instead of Sarah.

Since Sara is derived from Sarah, and since Sarah is derived from the S-R-R Quranic root, both Sara and Sarah can be considered Quranic names.

Sara in Persian means “pure”, “untainted”, and they use it as the name of Prophet Ibrahim’s wife instead of the standard Arabic Sarah.
