Etymology of the name SARAI.
Meaning of the baby name SARAI.

  

SARAI (שָׂרַי).  [Hebrew = "my princess" (?), "nobility" (?) (Gesenius); "contentious" (?) (Ewald)].  The original name of Sarah, Abraham's wife (Gen. xi. 29-31; xii. 5, 11, etc.). (The Sunday School Teacher's Bible Manual, Hunter, 1894)

... Sar in Hebrew signifies a prince, whence Sarai = my princess.  The Rabbis say that Jehovah changed this name by taking the last letter of His name and adding it to hers...

    The name of Abram's wife was Sarai.
    And God said unto Abraham, as for Sarai thy wife, thou shalt not call her name Sarai, but Sarah shall her name be.  And I will bless her.Genesis 11 and 17.

(Girls' Christian Names, Swan, 1905).
