History of Sarah

The verb to fight or to rule furnished both the names of the wife of Abraham; Sarai was thus converted into Sarah. If we may judge from the example of the bride of Tobias, the daughters of Sarah were occasionally called by her name, and Zara has been, with what correctness I know not, used as an eastern name.

Similarity of sound, indeed, led the loose etymologists of former days into deriving the term Saracen from the supposed assumption of this race to be descended from Sarah, in preference to Hagar; whereas the fact was that they never so called themselves at all, but recieved the title from their neighbours because they came from the East - in Arabic, sara.

Sarah now and then occurs in England, as with Sara Beauchamp but I suspect that she as well as Sarrota de Multon, who lived in the former reign, were alterations of some of the derivatives of the Teutonic prefix Signifying victory, as the masculine Saher or Serlo certainly came from Sigeheri. Sarah was never commonly used till after the Reformation, when it began to grow very popular, with its contraction Sally; and at the same time it was adopted as the equivalent for no less than three Irish names - Sadhbh, Sorcha and Saraid. The two first are still in use, but always land Kelts make a still stranger use of Sarah, which they use to translate their native Mor (great), perhaps in consequence of its meaning.

Elsewhere the name is occasionally used without the h that our bibilical translators gave it. It is not, however, very popular, though the French have used it enough to make it Sarotte; in Illyria its dimunitive is Sarica; in Lithuania it is Zore.
