Not famous maybe, but the main character in Daughter of the Empire, etc. Very good books. Oh, and it also was my next door neighbour's daughter when I was 4 or 5.

In the Redwall books by Brian Jacques (specifically the book Salamandastron), there is a badger named Mara. She is the adoptive daughter of Lord Urthstripe, and the friend of Pikkle the hare. They run away from home together because Mara feels restricted by Urthstripe's rules. She went on many adventures and then became the Badger Mother of Redwall Abbey.

I'm not sure if this would count as a 'famous bearer', but in the Elder Scrolls video game series, Mara is the goddess of love and compassion.

In modern day, probably the most famous bearer of this name is Star Wars character Mara Jade Skywalker, a Jedi Master and the wife of Luke Skywalker. Timothy Zahn actually used the name because it meant bitter, as Mara Jade was very bitter when she was first introduced.
