From the experts:
Tamar is a rich, strong Old Testament name sometimes given to girls born on the holiday of Sukkoth, as palm branches were used to make the roof of the sukkah. In the Bible, there are several Tamars, including a daughter of King David and also Absalom's daughter, who is praised for her 'fair countenance'.
Tamar is also a river name in ancient Celtic. The River Tamar forms the border between the British counties of Devon and Cornwall, and Tamar is also associated with the Thames.
The Russian form Tamara has long outshone Tamar, but we think Tamar feels fresher. Parents in modern Israel agree: Tamar is among the most popular girls' names there.
