 Sa·rah /ˈsɛrə, ˈsærə, ˈserə/

From: WordNet (r) 2.0

      n : (Old Testament) the wife of Abraham and mother of Isaac

From: Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary

    princess, the wife and at the same time the half-sister of
    Abraham (Gen. 11:29; 20:12). This name was given to her at the
    time that it was announced to Abraham that she should be the
    mother of the promised child. Her story is from her marriage
    identified with that of the patriarch till the time of her
    death. Her death, at the age of one hundred and twenty-seven
    years (the only instance in Scripture where the age of a woman
    is recorded), was the occasion of Abraham's purchasing the cave
    of Machpelah as a family burying-place.
      In the allegory of Gal. 4:22-31 she is the type of the
    "Jerusalem which is above." She is also mentioned as Sara in
    Heb. 11:11 among the Old Testament worthies, who "all died in
    faith." (See ABRAHAM.)

From: Hitchcock's Bible Names Dictionary (late 1800's)

 Sarah, lady; princess; princess of the multitude
