I like it with 2 p’s because of sapphire…really nice name:)

I like [name]Sapphira[/name] best. It just has the most appealing look to me. You may have to correct some people, but it looks more elegant than the other two, to me. That being said, I automatically pronounced [name]Safira[/name] as sah-fear-ah… So maybe it would pose less problems.

Its spelled [name]Saphira[/name] in Eragon… Which I’m pretty sure thats what the name was created for. I could be wrong though. I personally love this name. Its only not on my list because my mom doesnt like it. =(

It’s a biblical name, spelled [name]Sapphira[/name] in the current English translation. I agree with [name]Ash[/name] that [name]Safira[/name] might pose fewer pronunciation problems, though.

I think [name]Sapphira[/name] looks the best. It’s likely to be misspelled whichever you chose, though, so be weary of that. Otherwise - it’s a nice name.

It’s actually an ancient Greek name, just FYI.

Because it originates from gem [name]Sapphire[/name] the 2p spelling looks ‘right’ to me.
