I think Mara is beautiful and so underused!

I think most people will still pronounce it Maura either way.

I like it, but it’s going to get mispronounced often.

It is pretty if you don’t mind constantly correcting people on how to pronounce it. If you can handle that and think your little won’t mind constantly correcting people when she gets older...go for it!

Mara is gorgeous, but not in the way you want to say it, I have a friend Myria.

I’ve heard Mara pronounce MAR-uh (mar rhyming with bar) and MARE-uh (mar rhyming with bare). But I’ve only heard Maura as rhyming with Laura.

Have you considered Mary? Nobody uses it anymore, it will never be misprounounced, and it’s a lovely name.

I love Mara (and Maura for that matter too).
