Sarah is a Hebrew female name meaning “lady, princess, noblewoman” which comes from Hebrew root word sarar (to rule, to be princely) from sar (chief, ruler, prince, captain, chieftain, official) which seems to be a cognate of Akkadian šarru (king). Sarah seems to have been used as a title for royal women.
