Tara, pronounced with a hard a to rhyme with Sara. I changed the spelling to Terra when I was 18 because Tara is pronounced with a soft a to rhyme with car-a outside of the US and I travel/live abroad quite a bit.
I would suggest using Terra if you prefer that pronunciation since there hasn't been any confusion anywhere and I've received tons of compliments since I changed it.

I am from the NY tri-stae area. To me, Sarah is pronounced "Sah-ra". My husband is from MD and would pronounce it "Sair-a". Others, still, would say "Sar-a". Pick the spelling you like best. It's a name people are going to pronounce differently geographically speaking anyway.
Just an aside, I would pronounce Terra, "Teh-ra" - the e like "eh" how one would teach a child learning to read.
