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

Okay so I have a personal experience with the name sara. It's actually my twin sister's name. No wait it's my name. No it's my sister's name. Yeah it's my sisters name.

See we were so identical we forgot our own names. We done everything together, we shared everything but a few things were off limits of course (like my husband jace, and my other one sean). Yeah so we were like joined at the hip until that one incident.

In the winter of 1562, Sara met a man. His name was Red. They immediately fell in love, or at leat thats what it seemed. Sara took me to meet him one day and I recognised him right away. I stormed out of the house, my emotions flowing out of every opening in my body. My face wet with tears. The man, was my ex-lover.

Yes it was heart-breaking to see him with my own sister like that, but Sara was so deep in love with him that I decided to put a stone on my heart and make the decision of moving away to Idris.

2 years later

Red turns up at my doorstep. He tells me that it was me who he was actually after and that he was only with Sara to get close to me again. I was torn in two at that moment. On one hand there was the love of my life, Red. On the other hand there was my twin sister Sara. The same sister I got my first runes with, the same sister I slayed my first demon with, the same sister I...

I just didn't know what to do, or who to chose. There's no way I could chose between the two of them so I stormed into the kitchen and found the knife. I raised the knife and brang it down!

..... and spread it on the toast I made for Red. And then we ran away together.
