The first name 

Sahra is a female first name.

Sahra – one in 100,000!

There’s a good chance that a girl named Sahra in a medium-sized town will be unique. That’s because only a few babies a year are named Sahra in all of the US. Only about one in 100,000 girls is named Sahra by her parents. In the ranking of most common girls names in recent years, Sahra ranks at #6,004. That means there are 6,003 more common girls names, but there are also a few thousand that are even rarer. If you polled the whole US population – children, adults and seniors – you’d find less than one in 10,000 to be named Sahra.

You won't believe all there is 
to discover about the name

Sahra -
special from day one

In fact, the name Sahra hardly fits the trend of first names for girls. Between 1976 and 1999, young parents changed that a bit. For many years, Sahra wasn't given at all (or at least less than 5 times, because that's the number required for a name to appear in the statistics), but by 1986, the name was more popular than ever. Although the name never ranked higher than position 3,318, 23 parents chose it in 1986 as a potential new rising star on the horizon of beautiful and rare names. If your name is Sahra, you were already special when you were born - and you did your best to become a trendsetter.

In years where the graph has no value, the name Sahra was given less than five times or even none at all in the entire USA.

Sahra - originality welcome!

In 2022, expectant parents chose the rare name Sahra a few times. Among all newborn girls, it ranked 4,797, for a total of 23 babies. The name is still more common than it was most time of the last century, when it didn't appear at all for a many years. As Sahra seems to be a bit more popular in the middle of the 20th century, it proves to remain a great rarity in 2022.

Sahra -
at home only in a few regions of the USA

The first name Sahra is a true rarity among all women and girls currently living in the United States – only 138 Americans in total bear this name. And these 138 women are located in only five states: California, Minnesota, New York, Texas and Washington (it should be noted that the official statistics provide the data per state only if there are at least 5 women with this name in the state. So, if your name is Sahra and you live outside the states marked on the map, please let us know so we can improve our statistics). The state with the most girls and women named Sahra in relation to it’s female population is Minnesota. And yet even there, only one in 33,461 women would raise her hand if you asked, who is called Sahra.

Sahra has 5 letters 
and begins with an S

Well, you might say, you probably figured that out yourself! But what you might not know is: The letter S is a very popular first letter for girls' names. That’s because 9.3% of all common girls’ names in the US begin with this letter. Only the first letter A is more common for girls' names.

With five letters, the name Sahra is comparatively short. In fact, 17.0% of all common first names in the US consist of exactly five letters. Only 7% of all first names are even shorter, while 75% have more than five letters. On average, first names in the US (not counting hyphenated names) are 6.5 letters long. There are no significant differences between boys' and girls' names.

That means that if 9.3% of all girls' names start with an S, this initial letter occurs nearly three times as often as all other letters on average. And by the way: Of all the girls' names that start with an S, Susan is the most common.

Other names with 
S, a, h, r and a

If you take all the letters in the name Sahra – S, a, h, r and a – and put them together again, you can form other names, such as Sahar or others.
