Sapphire

Move over Pearls and Rubys of the world, here comes Sapphire. While it may not carry the cache of its trendier semi-precious stone sisters, Sapphire may be worth a second look. The “fire” sound contained in this beautiful name gives it a bright, bold sound. Of Hebrew origin, the Biblical Sapphira offended God by lying, and met with death as a result. And now that gem names are back on the map, September’s beguiling birthstone is poised to claim its rightly fame as a vibrant, gorgeous girl’s name.
