Tamara is a female given name with origins in both Hebrew and Arabic languages. It is most commonly derived from the Biblical name "Tamar" and the Arabic singular form "Tamra" (تَمْرَة tamrah) and plural form "Tamar" (تَمْر tamr), meaning "date," "date palm," or "palm tree" in both Hebrew and Arabic. The name has been used for centuries in countries such as North Macedonia, Poland, Russia, Serbia, Slovenia, and Ukraine. In the United States, the name was fairly common from the late 1950s to mid 1990s. The meaning of Tamara is associated with the date palm tree, which is used as a symbol of beauty and fruitfulness in the Bible. The name also has connections to the Sanskrit word for "water" and the Spanish word for "brushwood". Some variations of the name include Tamar, Temara, Tamra, Tamera, Tamira, and Tamora.
