Another famous bearer is Star Fox's girlfriend; Fara Phoenix (without the "h") phoenix (arguably pronounced 'fennecs'). She appeared in Star Fox comics from 2/'93 - 12/'93.

This is my mother's name. I think, personally, it's beautiful beyond compare. The name in of itself always brings a smile to me, I'd love to call my child Farah, if my mum would allow me!

My father told me it means "star" in Urdu. No, it DOESN'T mean "STAR" in Urdu, I'm pretty sure. I think that's Sitara (star).

It's pronounced FUR-AH, not FAY-RAH or FAI-RAH. It sounds pretty like that too!

This is my absolute favorite name, but I would feel very awkward using it since I do not come from an Arabic background.

Fara (minus the 'h') is the blacksmith/healer in Act II of Diablo II: Lord of Destruction. She is said to have once belonged to the Church of Light but is no longer part of the Zakarum. She is an upstanding woman.

I developed a real liking for this name after watching the '70s fantasy adventure film, Sinbad and the Eye of the Tiger. In it, Farah was the name of Jane Seymour's character, a beautiful Middle Eastern princess and Sinbad's love interest. Princess Farah was a breathtaking blend of exotic Eastern promise and '70s Boho chic.

My name is Farah and I really like it! I don't know why people would dislike this name, but I really like it.

Even if I'm not Muslim or a native Arabic speaker I want to give Farah to my daughter.
