Sarai Origin and Meaning

The name Sarai is a girl's name of Hebrew, Irish origin meaning "princess".

In the Old Testament, God changed Sarai's name to Sara, so this would make a clever and legitimate honor name for an ancestral Sarah. Sarahi is another pretty variation to make the connection even more clear.
