    MARA

    Means "bitter" in Hebrew.

    Hungarian variant of MÁRIA --which was the Latin form of the New Testament Greek names "Mariam" and "Maria" - the spellings are interchangeable - which were from the Hebrew name "Miryam". The meaning is not known for certain, but there are several theories including "sea of bitterness", "rebelliousness", and "wished for child". However it was most likely originally an Egyptian name, perhaps derived in part from mry "beloved" or mr "love".

    In Buddhism Mara has two roles - closely related. One is that of a kind of daemonic tempter. The other is that of chief of the deities of the sense realm. They are actually just aspects of the same thing. Mara doesn't like beings escaping from his/her/its realm so it will apply temptation. So you might think of Mara as a powerful, jealous seducer (or seductress - but traditionally given a male identity).
