Her Hebrew name means: Princess, the mother of the nations.
She was born in about 2155BC, had a son at 90 in 2065BC, and died at age 127.
She was one of the notable women of the Bible. Her former name was Sarai, which in Hebrew means Jah is prince in Hebrew.
She was also a half sister to Abraham as they had the same father, Terah, but not the same mother.
11:11 By faith Sarah, even though she was old and barren, received the strength to conceive, because she was convinced that the one who had made the promise was faithful. 12 Abraham was as good as dead, yet from this one man came descendants as numerous as the stars in the sky and as countless as the sand on the seashore.
29 Abram and Nahor took wives for themselves. The name of Abram’s wife was Sarai, and the name of Nahor’s wife was Milcah. She was the daughter of Haran, who was the father of Milcah and Iscah. 30 Sarai was barren, so she had not borne children.

God also said to Abraham,” As for Sarai your wife, you are no longer to call her Sarai; her name will be Sarah.
Sarah 2155-2028BC lived 127 years had one son called Isaac meaning laughter.
Most people know Sarah as the barren wife of Abraham. She was also his half–sister (same father–different mothers), which came from tribal marriage alliances in Hebrew times. This is how (in Genesis) Abraham can claim Sarah as his sister to the Egyptians.
