Farrah Origin and Meaning

The name Farrah is girl's name of Arabic, English origin meaning "happiness".
For a few seconds there in the late '70s, Farrah Fawcett's name was as frequently copied as her hairstyle; the name was Number 177 in 1977. Now, after many years off the charts and out of style, it's back, mostly thanks to a TV Teen Mom who bears the name.

Farrah and its spelling variation Farah are soft and lovely-sounding names whatever their fashion standing. Farrah's other major advantage is as a name that's familiar in both Arabic and English-speaking cultures and so can successfully straddle the two.
