If this is used as an anglicanized form of Máire, then wouldn't it be pronounced "MAHR-ya" or "MAH-rya"?

When I chose a name for my daughter, I wanted to choose a solid, Scotch/Irish name - namely because her father and I are both of Scotch/Irish decent (he Irish and I both). I am pleased to find that her name has also been lent to a saint. Her name suits her. She is the "great"ness that makes my life whole. It's wonderful her name can be a another positive affirmation. I was interested to find that it is also an anglicized version of Marie. I had wanted to give her my name while pregnant - but wanted her to have her own identity. I'm happy her name is (but distantly) related to mine.

I like this name. It's Irish, but people don't mispronounce it really.

I found it interesting to find out this name is Irish, and not only Italian and Spanish. It's cute, and it reminds of Mara which rhymes with Tara (my name). My gramma would love the name because it's Irish. However it does remind me a bit of Laura, which I can't stand.

If you name your daughter Maura and the other kids decide to hate her, they'll call her 'moron', which is what this name unfortunately sounds like. The name isn't very pretty, and it sounds old-fashioned.

This is my best friend's name and I LOVE it. It's cute and unique, it suits her in particular. As a nickname you could try Aur or Aura, the former being the one my said Maura prefers.

I rather like this name, I don't know why. I have a cousin named Maura, and her nickname is Maui so that might just be it. But I still like the name.

It is the Westron translation of the name Frodo in Tolkien's Lord of the Rings trilogy.

I think Moira is considerably more beautiful than Maura.

I prefer Moira as well.

I really like the name Maura. Though I do tend to find names beautiful that other people find ugly or old fashioned.
