    Sarah means princess in Hebrew not Arabic. Also, spelling it without an h at the end makes you a loser. 🙂

    The correct meaning of Sarah/Sara is “princess”… It means the same Hebrew and Arabic because both are Semitic languages with similar roots… Look up the etymology and you’ll find this is the correct meaning.

  10. on Sunday 17th of December 2017 04:07:37 PM

    sorry typo.. should say ” It means the same *in Hebrew and Arabic “

  11. on Sunday 17th of December 2017 04:12:15 PM

    This website stating it means “joy” is wrong.. remember to do your own research and not believe everything you read on the internet.. I’ve noticed this website has made a number of errors on name entries..

  12. on Saturday 17th of March 2018 06:36:15 PM

    names can have two meanings and sarah (the islamic name) means bringer of joy while the hebrew name means princess its arabic equivalent would ameera/amira
