    Sarita

    Like it or leave it?

    Something a bit different than Sarah, but similar sound and meaning, less common, and 3 syllables to go with our 2-syllable last name.

    Nickname Sari. Used in English, Spanish, Hebrew, Indian languages. We're Jewish living in Canada.

    My son's name is Dov - a Hebrew name meaning 'bear' and pronounced like 'Dohv'.

    I like it as a nickname for Sara or Sarai.

    I'm not into it.

    People use Sarit, though. It's cute, sweet, variation on Sara, and Israeli sounding. I like that more.

    Sarit
    Serena
    Malka (Means Queen, as Sara means Princess) ?

    I love Sarita. It is one of my top three favourite Sarah variants and much better with a two-syllable surname than Zara is, probably.

    I like Sarai more than Sari though.

    My favourite Hebrew S name is Shoshana though.
