Mara

An Old Testament name adopted by Naomi who was grief-stricken after the deaths of her husband and sons. Possibly a variation of Mary or the short form of Tamara, it's been listed among the top names since 1950. Parents may connect the name with child actress Mara Wilson who starred in the films "A Simple Wish," "Matilda," and "Mrs. Doubtfire" during the 1990s.
