"My name is Sarah and I cannot believe that it is listed as a boys' names! It is clearly a girls only name." Apr. 26, 2008:
"My name is Sarah, its a little plain for me so most of the time I go by Hollie (dont ask I just like that name) but my has an H because that's the right way to spell it." Jul. 1, 2007:
"Well, I know at least ten Sarah's, all of which I adore. Sarah is a very strong name and I think most girls with the name Sarah are very strong girls. My sister's name is spelled without an H, but every other Sarah I've met has an H on the end. I think I prefer it without the H, but everyone tends to spell it with an H." Jun. 25, 2007:
"My name is Sarah May, i love the way it sounds. My friends give me nick- names but not 'cause my name "penut" because i'm little and not big. Bot anyway i like the way the name sounds and the way it can fit a personality of the girl." Jul. 4, 2006:

"my name is SaraH. I?m a guy. Used to hate it, cause it literally means ?princess? and ?nobel woman? and i blamed my hippie parents for a long time for all the grief i got from kids at school. However, i?ve come to love it. And see it?s masculine qualities. This name has made me a very strong person and I feels like a viking name or royal or something idk. Pretty sure all those guys being names SaraH in the 80s were just gender code mistakes because the name was so popular tho. But yeah. I don?t mind my name, and a lot of people don?t like it, but i don?t care. My wife loves it and wants to make it our sons middle name. LoL my wife?s name is Ryan. Telemarketers get very confused."

"No way is it a boy's name. I'm 41 yrs old and never heard of a boy called Sarah so must be mistake. I hated my name when I was little but now luv it. But the name must have got real popular when I was a kid even thou my mum reckons she knew no one with the name at the time.(Except my aunt Sarah). For 29 years now even my best mate is called Sarah lol." Aug. 13, 2013:
