N is for...Name!
What's in a name? What's in my name? Let's have a look...
(from behindthename.com )
Means "lady" or "princess" in Hebrew. This is the name of the wife of Abraham in the Old Testament. She became the mother of Isaac at the age of 90. Her name was originally Sarai, but God changed it (see Genesis 17:15). In England, Sarah came into use after the Protestant Reformation.
I found out when I was really young that my name meant 'Princess' - what little girl wouldn't love that? It made my day when I was tiny. 'Lady' is probably more apt now that I'm older. Can't say I fancy following in Sarahs of the Old Testaments footsteps however and giving birth at 90, I can't see that being any fun at all!
My name is ranked #95 in England, #43 in USA, #10 in Ireland and #4 in Austria!
