Saari Name Meaning
Finnish: from saari ‘island’. Mostly, this is an ornamental name adopted during the name conversion movement at the end of the 19th and the beginning of the 20th centuries, but it may also be a topographic name for someone living on or near an island. It is found chiefly in central and southern Finland. In America, it is also found as an abbreviation of names containing this element, such as Viitasaari.
