How do you pronounce Sarai?

My cousin just had a baby girl, and named her Sarai. Is it pronounced Sah-ray? Sah-rye? Something else?

  • IT was Sarah's name (in the bible) before she and Abraham became Jewish.  It is pronounced Sa-rye.
  • I would pronounce it Suh-rye.

    Ditto.  I think it's a really pretty name too.

  • I imagine the girl will pronounce it "Sara with an i on the end."  Stick out tongue
    Growing up way too fast!

  • I have a 5th grader with this name!  She has asked to be called Sarah.  Her mother calls her sara-ee.  (if that makes sense)

    This, exactly!

  • I've had a Sarai (Suh-rye) in my class.
  • I've heard Sarah in the States and when living in Mexico it was pronounced Sarah-ee, although it sounds slightly different with the central Mexican accent.  The accent was on the EE.
