I think this name is beautiful, in both a traditional and exotic way.

It's an okay name, but it sounds like Atari. I wouldn't name my kid that.

I'd like it a lot better if the name was stressed on the second syllable instead.

I stress the second syllable when I say it. This is my name in Hebrew.

I prefer Tara.

I have known a handful of Atarahs and Ataras, some of whom were Israeli, and I have always always always heard it pronounced closer to uh-TAR-uh, and never AT-a-ra. From what I know about the Hebrew language AT-a-ra is incorrect. [noted -ed]

@ZoeAliza, the pronunciation with the first syllable stressed is not incorrect. In Hebrew, there is not definite stress, as in European languages. The syllables actually have equal stress, and can change based on context. Of course, English speakers would naturally want to stress the second syllable.

Pronounced "ah-tah-rah".

Very pretty, and much more likable than Aaliyah or Jordan or other popular Hebrew names.

A beautiful name, but it seems to be a name that would fit a fictional villain.
