What’s remarkable about the name Sarah is how enduring and timeless it is. In the Bible, Sarai is the beautiful but barren wife of Abraham. At age 90, God changes her name from Sarai (“she who strives”) to the noble Sarah (“princess”) and blesses her with a child. She gives birth to Jacob and becomes the matriarch of the Jewish people. Sarah was in the top 50 girls' names from 1979 to 2001 but has since declined in popularity.
