I think Mara s a pretty name. It means a lot of different things in a lot of different cultures, and it has a very long history.
Directly translated, MARA means "bitter" in Hebrew, but MARA is also a Hungarian variant of MÁRIA, which is a Hungarian and Slovak form of MARIA. MARIA is the Latin form of Greek names Μαριαμ (Mariam) and Μαρια (Maria), which is from the Hebrew name מִרְיָם (Miryam), or MARY. The true 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".
But really, your name can mean whatever you want it to mean.Source(s): http://www.behindthename.com/name/mara-2

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).
