Meanings and history of the name Sapphira: | Edit

Probably means beautiful or precious; comes from the Hebrew word sapir, meaning gem or jewel.
Related to the word "sapphire." Sapphires are highly prized gems, most famous for their beautiful vibrant blue variety but also sold in every other color under the name "rainbow sapphire" or "fancy sapphire." These come in all the basic colors: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple, pink, brown, white, black, and grey, as well as many hues and shades such as peach, teal, and magenta. Some sapphires are identified as "star sapphires" because they display a starburst design within them, making them always look as if they were radiating or reflecting light.
