Note - DEFINITELY DO NOT CALL HER SARAH, SARA, SANDRA OR ANY OTHER NAME BUT THE ONE SHE WAS BLESSED TO HAVE!!!!!!!! I CANNOT STRESS HOW ANNOYING THIS IS. HONESTLY - IT'S NOT HARD TO SIMPLY PRONOUNCE SA-HA-RA. GOSH PEOPLE.

I grew up being called "sahawa", and "wawa" because my little brothers couldn't pronounce r's. But i don't think you want to be called that...

My name's Sahara, and I've never met another in my life. My mom made me think there was no one else with the same name, and now its so unreal. I think it's awesome though. It's funny beacuse I have to tell everyone how to pronounce it, and sometimes it gets annoying when I have to repeat it. ;)
