What Does Your First Name Mean?

Where did your name come from?

Let’s think outside the box on this question. I searched for what my name, “Sara” means and it came up with Hebrew origin meaning “princess” (obviously). However, I found an interesting site My First Name Rocks. Here is what the site says about the name “Sara”:

S – is for smile, it gives you face value.

A – is for admirable, you certainly are!

R – is for relish, you seek a challenge.

A – is for abundant, your cheer knows no bounds.

The name “Sara” is of Hebrew origin. It’s a name commonly given to girls.

Your name in reverse order is “Aras.” A random rearrangement of the letters in your name (anagram) will give ‘Sara.’ How do you pronounce that?
