Personal experiences with the name Sara: | Edit

My best friend's name is Sára and, because her name is not English, she gets called a variety of different things. Most commonly, Sarah or Sara. The proper pronunciation is "shara" so it's easy to understand why people get confused. Although vaguely amusing the first few times people fail to get it right, after a while it just gets boring. You can hear it when she corrects people that she's tired of having to repeat her own name, bless.

One of my best friends names is Sara. It is a great name and really suits her fun, wonderful personality

Sara is a common name so I was kind of annoyed when my husband wanted to name our twin daughter that, but now I'm glad we named her that, cause we call her Princess, which is the meaning of Sara, which is great for her adorable sweet personality
