It’s not common practice for mother’s to pass on their name to their daughters, since it seems a little odd to add Jr. to a girl’s name. But Sarita could work for this, as it means “Little Sarah” in the Spanish-speaking countries where it’s popular. So if you’re a Sarah and you want to pass the name on to your child, Sarita is a feminine and interesting way to do that. The name is also popular in India and Nepal, where it’s similar to Sarika.


  • hebrew: Princess
