Shari is a variant spelling of Sharie.

Shari is a diminutive (nickname) of Sharon.

The name Sharon occurs in the bible as the name of two separate regions.

The name Sharon occurs in the bible as the name of two separate regions. One, a plain east of the Jordan River. The second, a large fertile area encompassing much of the North Coast of Israel, known today as the Sharon Plain.

The Sharon Plain lies just east of the Mediterranean Sea and to the west of the Samarian Hills. It reaches from Mount Carmel and Caesarea in the north to the Yargon River and the northern tip of Tel Aviv in the south.

The area was fertile in biblical times and is referred to in the Song of Solomon which describes the Schulamite bride as a flower of Sharon. It is also mentioned in inscriptions of the Egyptian Pharoah Thutmose III (reigned 1504-1450 BCE).

The plain was restored to its biblical fruitful form beginning in the late 19th century when a citris orchid was planted at Hadera in 1894. Although the area is more urban today, a large portion is still agricultural, supporting citrus and mixed crops as well as vineyards in the Tanninim River valley.

Within the U.S. and Europe the name is generally used as a girl's name, however in some countries such as Israel it is considered a unisex name.

Hebrew names have their origins in either the Old Testament or modern Hebrew vocabulary.

Local language versions of biblical names of Hebrew origin such as Hannah and David are still widely internationally popular today.

Modern Hebrew names are often derived from Hebrew vocabulary, for example Aviva (spring) and Dov (bear).

Children of Jewish heritage are usually given a Hebrew name for religious purposes and are sometimes also given a local language version of that name for secular purposes.

By custom, Ashkenazi Jews (Jews of German or Eastern European descent) name their children after deceased relatives. This is in order to honor the deceased relative, keep their name and memory alive, and to form a bond between the soul of the baby and the deceased relative so that they can live on within the newer generation.

Sephardic Jews (Jews of Spain, Portugal and the Middle East) in contrast, name their children after living relatives or deceased relatives. The father's parents names are generally used first and then the mother's parents names.

Neither Ashkenazi or Sephardic Jews will name a baby after one of the parents.

After a child is born, the father is given an aliyah (religious honor to bless the reading of the Torah). After this a blessing is said for the health of the mother and child. If the baby is a girl, she is named at this time. If the baby is a boy, he will be named during his brit milah (ritual circumcision) generally eight days after birth.
