My daughter is named Marah, with an h, and is pronounced Mar-uh. My baby name book said that the name is Greek and means "eternally beautiful." I have told her that's the meaning and have just ignored the other meanings.

my name is Mara Proniunced MAR-Uh. I love it a lot. It's very unique and pretty. but no one can ever'say it or spell it right which is a bummer. I'm named after Mara Jade from Star Wars. (My fathe's a bit needy) . In don't know , it could be worse, but definitely better.

My name is Mara and It's pronounced mar-uh unlike how It's commonly pronounced. This name is unique and I am proud of it. Also I am a huge Star Wars fan so you know how cool I think my name is. Something weird is that if I was a boy my name was going to be lando ( thanks dad)

I think of the meaning as related to the'sea...latin mar- for sea. Same as with Spanish. So I wouldn't worry about the nightmare meaning thing :)

My cousin here on the east coast is Marah, and they usually get it right over here, but they do tend to pronounce it incorrectly out west. I love this name I think it is beautiful and unique. When I was a baby I would call her Mah-Wah. She didn't enjoy her name as a child (who really does?) but has come a happy agreement that there wouldn't be a better name for her, and, she is one of the most caring, gentle, nurturing, kind souls I know. GO MARAH!!
