A new woman friend here in Galveston TX is Tamara. I didn't have any problem pronouncing it, from the get-go! When I'mentioned her to another womanfriend in L.A. on the phone, that intelligent woman said, did you know that means Palm Tree? I was so glad for verification on this website. One in a million would get it. And, Galveston Island Off the coast of Texas, near Houston)is full of palm trees, very tropical here. This Tamara is gorgeous inside and out. Thank you for this website, I read all the entries, laughed and cried. All you Tamaras out there, you are great Palm Trees! gotta luv it. scott

3/23/2023 6:11:54 AM

Hate it. People never get it right and I'm tired of explaining the proper way of saying it. I'm spanish so the r is supposed to be rolled of the tongue, Tam-a-rrrruh. Either way the name leaves a bitter taste in my mouth. I also hate Tammy, the name reminds me of stripper or trailer park trash.

My name is Tamara. I tell people it rhymes with camera. I hated the name when I was young. I was born in 1969. None of my teache's It'seemed had ever heard of the name. I like it now. It's still mid-pronounced, but I correct once then answer to anything, and any different spelling . I'm not bothered by it all. My kids and grandkids like it too. It's different.

1/25/2023 12:51:20 AM

hey, my names Tamara (ta-ma-ra)it is just prononced the way it is spelt pretty much.I'm 11 and I'm from NSW in Australia. I get called Tim-tam alot at school but it is my favourite nickname. I know a couple of people named Tamara but not very many. When I was about 6 I wanted to change my name to something of a movie but now I love it and It's uniqueness and would never change it for the world. I really don't care what people call me. My teacher always calls me Tamorro and stuff like that. My mum and dad call me Tam-ba-lam and changed the lyrics from "whoah, black betty bam-ba-lam to "whoah, black betty Tam-ba-lam". That doesn't really annoy me either. Sometimes my friends spell my name wrong.They spell it like "Tammara" and put two m's in sometimes. What I really hate is when my friend wrIt's my name without a capital letter when I tell her time after time that It's spelt with a capital. She'spells everyones name with a capital but mine. As I'm still young I don't know that much about myself as I will in about 20 years. Apparently my name means lots of different things like "date palm", "palm tree", "spice" and "lotus flower".

1/22/2023 8:29:38 AM

I named my daughter Tamara and I couldnt be happier with the name! She'seems to like it too, or so she'says now that'shes 3, hope she keeps feeling that way in years to come!

I agree with the other comment!! My name is mispronounced EVERY DAY!! Very annoying. Too many different pronunciations of this name. I have even found that people will mispronounce my name after I have told them my name (they are not even reading it).... The correct way to pronounce my name (given by my parents) is Ta mah ra

9/14/2022 1:30:58 AM

Am from Jamaica, and i can'tell you the name is very popular and also the alias thatcomes with It'such as T, Tammy, Tamo, Tam tam and the list goes on. I remember being in a class with two other Tamara's the teacher had so much difficulty she'starts calling us by our Surname. I think its the best name ever and the meaning is Palm tree.

9/12/2022 11:21:36 PM

My name is Tamara. It's pronounced: Tam - Ah - Rah. Ryhmes with Camera. Half of the time, It's said too fast, so it ends up sounding like Tam - Rah. So I'm used to either pronounciation; Dosen't bother me. Pretty name, but pretty difficult to get at first.

9/11/2022 5:37:40 AM

My name is Tamara and I was born in the early 1972s and didn't know anyone else with this name until I went to high school and met one other person in a graduating class of close to 700 people. I think my mother named me after a Russian ballerina. I used to really dislike my name because in school, every teacher would call it out and mispronounce it. My name is pronounced TA-ma-ra with the accent on the first syllable. They always called me Ta-MARE-a with an accent on the'second syllable which I hated. My family and friends always called me Tammy which I liked and still do today even'though I'm much older. Tamara sounded very hard and cold to me...and that's the name I would be called when I was in trouble at home (lol). If I heard "Tam" or "Tammy", it made me feel good. Deep inside, I think Tamara is very sensuous and if the right person said it the right way, I'd probably love it more. It's a unique name'so a lot of people remember it and always remember me because of that's a plus. I'm thankful and grateful for having such a beautiful accent (name) attached to my life.

9/9/2022 11:53:44 AM

Tamra is my name. It is often mistaken for Tamara. My nickname is always Tammy. Very seldom do I use the name Tamra, unless It's pertaining to legal matter. I do like my name though!

9/5/2022 4:26:48 AM

no one ever forgets my name im glad my mum called me tamara

8/31/2022 12:01:12 PM

My name is Tamara, pronounced with a spanish accent, Ta-mod-duh. I hope that made sense. I love my name, but hate when people can me different after i've given'them the pronunciation speech!! Some people are just dorks!!

8/21/2022 4:03:18 AM

The origin of the name Leah is hebrew. In its original context it is pronounced Lay ah-not lee ah

8/11/2022 1:28:30 PM

Hey, my name is Tamara also, I'm from Slovenia. I like my name a lot, It's quite rare, so I have only met a couple of people who share my name in my life. I think It's sweet that it means "palm tree" because i've always liked palms, they're like a symbol of exotic. People generally pronounce it correctly(or at least that's how i've pronounced it my whole life) which is: TAH-muh-rah but sometimes they say Tuh-MAH-rah,which I don't like and I get quite agitated :) There are also several songs dedicated to a Tamara that are very known around here and people always sing the'songs to me, which is way cute I think, because it doesn't happen'to people with different names :) i've had lots of nicknames like Tammy, Tamzy, Mari, Tamary ... I prefer Tamary,though. So, yeah, It's a great name and I wouldn't change it.

8/7/2022 7:48:18 PM

I feel as though my name is unique. I pronounce it "Ta-Mar-Ruh."...C how fly is that.

8/6/2022 7:06:00 PM

Hi, my name is Tamara and I pronounce it TAM-a-ra. I love my name I just hate it when people call me Tamera, like Tia and Tamera or Tomara, like the next day.

7/27/2022 11:01:48 PM

My name is pronounced ta-MA-ra and people say it wrong ALL THE TIME. I'm 20 now..i used to hate my name, but people always compliment me on it. Plus i have the most nick names out of anyone i could go on forever! And i've only ever met one person who pronounces it the' the end I'm just glad i wasn't named "jessica", "laura", or "amanda" :)

7/14/2022 8:16:12 PM

tons and tons of people spell my name wronge and every teacher i've had pronounces it wronge. none of the'stores have it on something and if they do its spelled wronge. also the'stores that have initals don't have h. my last name is halie nowakowski... think of the possibilities.

7/12/2022 2:23:24 AM

Hey, this is my name too and I'must say that I wouldn't change it! I think It's enough "normal" and "exotic" at the'same time and I feel good with it! :-)

6/11/2022 4:13:12 PM

Hi - My name is Tamara and I am now 33, born in Canada but living in the UK for most of my life. My name is pronounced Tam ar a. I hate it when people say Tammera, Tamera and worst of all Tamsin!

I have not met any other people named Tamara yet!

5/27/2022 12:09:18 AM

I'm a Tamara in high school and I'm the only one. have only met another Tamara in my whole life and it wasn't that bad cuz they called her by her'second name. so i have always been called Tamara and I'm the only one. there have been A LOT of people that write the name wrong, probably because it has so many variables of it (Tamora, Tamera, Tamrah, Tamarah, etc.). mine is Tamara like Camara. i like the Indian meaning better, its spice. and i find it more inter'sting than palm tree... like both i can say w/e seems better at the moment....

5/25/2022 9:37:12 PM

I am 46 years old and am a Tamara. When I was born my parents just wanted to name me Tammy but the Catholic priest who was going to Baptise me said they had to name me Tamara because it was a saints name.

I have been called Tomorrow, Tamarea, Tam, and Tam us the bam us.

I'm continually getting jokes like...see you tamara tomorra and stuff like that. people also misspronounce my name on purpose, i think they think i's funny or something haha. people generally get it right, they just have to ask a few times before they're confident enough to say it. my name is pronounce tah-mar-rah. just to add i LOVE my name and am grateful that it was chosen for me. not because i like it but also because so does everyone else!! I'm always getting complemented on how pretty my name is. =D

My name is Tamara and I also pronounce it like camera with a T. (I have never been called Tammy, wouldn't like it.) I didn't like it when I was younger because I had a foreign-sounding last name and the combination was a bit too much for people. But I have grown accustomed to my name and am proud to have a name that is different. My name came from a Russian dancer who was killed in a plane crash during WWII (she was a USO dancer). My mother heard the name and liked it and when I came along that's the name they chose for me.

My name is Tamara and when I was younger I went by Tammy, but at age 20 I began going by Tamara. I love my name but I do get alot of mispronunciations!! Tam-AIR-A, UGH oh well ... =0)

4/11/2022 2:29:42 AM

I love my name, I used to be called Tammy as a nickname but when I hit my 20s I started using Tamara. People compliment me all the time. What I hate the most is when people mispronounce my name by putting alot of emphasis on the A's.

Salam, I am currently having an opportunity to know more about a lady named tamara. Her name is really very attracting to the ear. I personally liked it much. I like also palm trees. Hope her life be beautiful and charming as palm trees.

I have had to grow into this name. For every one person that'says it correctly there are a dozen'that'say it wrong. My Mother and Father were in a pizza place when my Mom was almost ready to deliver. They had not decided on a name and a little girl about 4 -5 years old was at the'same pizza shop with her parents. Her name was Tamara and my Mom fell in love with the name. I wish that I could meet the little girl that I am named after. My Mom tells me that when I was little that'she and I looked alike. I guess I will never know on this side anyway.

2/20/2022 3:44:24 PM

My name is Tamara and I only know one other girl with this name. I absolutely love my name and i've never met anyone who had a problem pronouncing it. People call me TAM-ARA, TAM-AIR-UH, or TAM-RUH. :)

My name. I am a twin to a fraternal boy named Thomas. Nurse suggested these names for twins. We go by Tammy and Tom. Tamara is a hard name to "hear" and pronounce correctly. i've been mistakenly heard/called "Pamela", or "Pammy". Men seem to love the name Tamara over the nickname Tammy. Tamar is a woman in the bible who did not have an easy life, so I think I'd rather have been named "Ruth" or someone whose life ended with a pretty good guy! :)

1/23/2022 7:53:42 AM

My sister name is Tamara its pronounce (Tam-ar-uh) Ther's differnet ways to pronounce it. her nickname is Tam. When people first meet her they always pronounce it wrong like they'll call her Tamera I think its funny when people do.

1/22/2022 6:10:12 PM

My name is Tamara, but I pronounce it ta-my-ra. I get on the offensive side when people pronounce my name wrong. Even after I tell them that they say it wrong, they still don't say it right.

Tamara is my daughter's name. She's 24, living in New York. I chose her name after I looked it up and found it meant "tree of life" in Hebrew. I love trees and I named my son Sylvan who's serving in Iraq. My favorite poem as a kid was Joyce KI'mer's (18861918) Trees I THINK that I shall never'see A poem lovely as a tree. A tree whose hungry mouth is prest Against the'sweet earth's flowing breast; A tree that looks at God all day, And lifts her leafy arms to pray; A tree that may in summer wear A nest of robins in her hair; Upon whose bosom snow has lain; Who intimately lives with rain. Poems are made by fools like me, But only God can make a tree.

My name is Tamara also, and I am 30. It took me until I was 20 to really grow into the name, it is a big name for a little girl to carry. I was always Tammy when I was younger, but I hate it - I always used to get the "Tammy's In Love" song by Debra Reynolds (Tammy and the Batchelor) sung at me. At school I was nicknamed Tim Tam after the biscuits, or Tam Bam after the TV show "The Henderson Kids". Now I am Tam to my friends, Tamara in general, and if I hear Tammy called out across the room, I know it must be someone I knew from LONG ago!!

12/13/2021 10:06:00 AM

I love my name I pronounce it Ta-Mare-rah. Which is different than what people automatically say but, I still love it. I think It's very pretty, sounds like the very cool girl next door =D lol! Tomorrow, Mary, Tomatetor are just a few nicknames I have been dawned.

12/9/2021 1:47:24 AM

This is my name. when i was a kid i always hated it everyone was jennifer or jessica and I was Sandra. But now that i am 28 I have grown to like my name. It'sounds pretty. I hate it when people call me Sandy though. You should ask before giving someone a nick name

11/4/2021 9:08:24 AM

My name is Tamara (we pronounce Tam-uh-ra). I looove my name. I hated it when I was younger because It'seems so difficult a concept for some people to grasp. However, as i've gotten older i've really come to appreciate not being a "Jessica" or "Ashley" or one of those other popular names. i've only met one other person with my name and same pronunciation and she delivered my daughter. I love my name and wouldn't chance It's uniqueness for anything. It also turns out really inter'sting nicknames, my favorIt's of which are Tee-Tee amd Tam-Tam.

10/31/2021 1:38:24 PM

I'm palistianian girl ;and this is my name when i say to people that my name is tamar they say oh what what is the meaning of it??

10/31/2021 4:29:24 AM

tamara, as you say means palm-tree or date-tree... but It's biblical meaning It's not victory, but righteousness. right men, true people, are compared with "palm trees" in the bible because they grow up-right from earth to heaven no matter what goes on arround them. also the fruitfulness of the dates is said to be the reward for such righteous behaviour.

10/29/2021 8:27:54 PM

I fell upon this page by accident, and am so glad I did :) It's really neat to see that there are more namesakes out there!

10/16/2021 6:37:12 PM

I don't understand why so many women named Tamara have such disdain for "Tammy." They're both lovely!

10/4/2021 5:35:06 AM

My name is a Tamara also. I dont mind being called Tammy because its better than being called Ta-mare-ah or Ta-mar-ah, i hate that.

9/26/2021 5:26:06 AM

I LOVE My Name!!! ~Tamara~ Mine's pronounced Tam-Uh-Ruh. I often get that mispronunciation thing too! i've been called tambera with some mysterious "b" sound! And tomato too! -But still I love my name! The'sound of it and It's meanings: palm tree, lotus flower, & spice. All beautiful symbolI'ms of stren'th! Yay! GO TAMARAS!!!

9/25/2021 12:57:54 PM

I like when people come up with their own way of saying it. but it is confusing for othe's when'they meet someone who says it differently. I find it an exotic and mysterious name.

9/14/2021 2:27:54 AM

Hi, my names Tamara and I'm in grade 6. I am the only Tamara in the whole school and no one pronounces it wrong. I although hate when people spell my name with 2 m's (Tammara) I live in Canada, but come from Serbia. In Serbia, Tamara is a very popular name. (We pronounce it Tam-uh-ra) My nickname is Tammy but I don't really like it. so ya. But I think the name Tamara is very unique and I love it!!*

9/2/2021 6:48:54 AM

8/19/2021 5:59:24 PM

Hi ..I am a Tomara..(pronounced Tom-R-uh)..I have not met anyone with my spelling or pronounciation.

8/13/2021 5:31:30 AM

My name is Tamara too but I say it the way it looks, Ta-mah-ra, its not that hard to understand. I like it but when people say it they sound as if they struggle.

8/2/2021 5:54:00 PM

i've heard about ten different pronounciation of my name.but people call me taza,tasha,tara

7/8/2021 7:29:24 PM

Love, the name Tamara. I pronounce it TAM-a-ra. My name gets mispronouced alot, but sometimes its pronouced correctly, depending on the person. Overall, I feel that my name is beautiful and special. Not everyone has this name and it makes me very greatful to have this name.

7/6/2021 6:11:06 AM

I dislike it whenever'someone pronounces my name "Ta-mare-ruh" ... I correct them saying It's all with long a's. :) So it ends up pronounced as "Tah-mah-rah." I'm Eurasian, and my Filippino side likes to joke around with the fact that "Tamaraw" means water buffalo! The irony with my name is that it means "palm tree" in Arabic, and I'm pretty short for my age.. My European friends like to joke around with that at mind. :) Otherwise I'm aware that it also means water lily and copper in a certain Indian dialect too. On my first day of the 7th grade, every teacher'serenaded me with Annie's song "The'sun'll come out, tomorrow" except their version was "Tamara, Tamara, I love you, Tamara. You're only, three seats away!" The'song now officially annoys me. Haha. i've gotten so many nicknames, but the ones that have deviated from my actual name includes Tamomo, Momo, Mara, Rara, TJ, Tam, Tomato and Tomorrrow. It's an endless list, and it keeps growing every day. :)
