- Comments and insights on the name Sariah
Some parents may derive Sariah from "Sarah," mixing it with a contemporary-sounding "iah" ending. They should be aware that Sariah is a scriptural name among Latter-day Saints, being found in the Book of Mormon (Sariah was the mother of Nephi.)
Wherever it comes from, I think it's very pretty! More exotic than plain old Sarah.
Also reminds me of psoraisis!
- Personal experiences with the name Sariah
I've heard the name twice, once online and it's the name of a talkative little girl.I was surprized to see the name here. I had no idea it was derived from Sarah. I thought it was from Mariah. As far as my experince with the name,it is easy to remember and spell, and it is a less common sounding version of its original.
My oldest daughter's name is Sariah Nicole (12 years old). I love the way it flows and most importantly, SHE loves her name too (I hated mine growing up so this is important to me). I love that it's unique, but still a name that can be pronounced properly! She is very kind, talented, smart, gorgeous, shy/quiet, just an amazing girl and the name suits her well :) I also love the meaning of the name Sariah, although I was not aware of it when I named her.
