This name derives from the Hebrew “mârâ'”, meaning “bitter, bitterness” which carries the implication "strength". Biblical: Naomi, the mother-in-law of Ruth, claimed the name Mara as an expression of grief after the deaths of her husband and sons. It also means "Lady" in Aramaic, because Mar means "Lord", and is a title of bishops in the Syriac Christian church.
