I usually work on Sarah=s-air-a and Sara=sahra, as that fits _most_ of the 
people I come across, but I now know a Sara who pronounces her name S-air-a, 
and I'm sure I knew another in the 1970's at junior school.  So I don't think 
it's a hard and fast rule, though in the UK it does seem to be a tendency (or 
is it just that way where I've lived?)
