Totally thought Saharah was a boy this whole time! I know, I must be pretty late to the party but it was kinda a shock! She is in my town today and one of my villagers said something like 'it takes guts to be a traveling saleswoman these days' Anyone else not know? I fear I may be the only one

Are you serious?

Sahara as a girl's name is pronounced sah-HAH-rah. It is of Arabic origin, and the meaning of Sahara is "desert".

I know how it's said and that it is in reference to the desert, I just always figured it to be a boy. Feels weird. I'm still gonna read everything she says in an overly happy, elderly, Indian mans voice.

For what it's worth, in the Japanese version, Saharah (and Gracie for that matter) are both male. So it's not like you're entirely wrong either... xP

Some of the wikis say the Saharah is a boy in the JP version. I always thought it was a girl because of the eyelashes.

I don't know, the eyelashes never tipped me off, to me it just added to his persona

They're so exaggerated though lol. And I believe Gracie is a girl in the NA version, so eyelashes are still a good tip off~ I can see why you'd think it's a boy though, nikkicrown.

LOL, so is Saharah, and yet:

You're really trying, aren't you? :[/b])

That's one of the most admirable things about Animal Crossing, it doesn't give a monkeys fart about genders or gender stereotypes, or well.. at least likes to play around with them.

O_O Gracie was a guy? And I sort of thought that Saharah was a boy, but I guess I was wrong- At least in the NA version.

Funny this thread mades me remind the whole AC:CF scandal/controversy when the Japanese (and also the Korean) site said that Saharah, Gracie and also (beleive it or not) Blanca are males!

I always thought that was females, but nope are males...

But anyway in the end wasn't very big, is just another missunderstood between Nintendo Japan and America (something similar with the "Birdo case")

Yep, she's a female, but a male in the Japanese version. In the older games she had a really deep voice so I can see why people think she's a guy. I'm not sure why they changed their gender, I mean I thought the eyelashes were just a camel thing.

I think Nintendo was trying to avoid a controversy with Vivian which might also be the reason they changed Gracie to a girl.

In japan Vivian is a transgendered woman being born male but identifying as female. Gracie is just a really feminine guy. I don't know about Saharah and Blanca I don't think has a listed gender in Japan.
