Comments for TERRA:

To me, the name looks too similar to "terror".

I like this name. I think it's a better spelling of Tara. Tara looks like it's spelled funny to me.

I love this name, it's a very pretty name.

I think the name 'Terra' was a mispelling of 'Tara'.

Perfect name for the earth mutant from Teen Titans. Cute, but Terror, still.

Terra is said how it is spelt. Tara is TAR-ra or Tah-ra, NOT TERRA!

This name always makes me think of a turtle.

Terra Branford was the main character of the SNES game released in the US as Final Fantasy III and later for GBA as Final Fantasy VI. She was one of few people who could naturally use magic due to a very unusual lineage.

Sounds too much like the word for 'earth' in that dead language that provides a source of vocabulary for pretentious people and that was created for the educated male elite, that is, Latin. Plus, it sounds like 'terror' in many people's pronunciation.

*rolls eyes* Just because you don't know Latin doesn't mean you have to ATTEMPT to be witty about the supposed uselessness of the language.
I much prefer this spelling. I like the earthy connection, and since I actually know some Latin, this has a stronger meaning for me than Tara.

Hang the relationship to "terror" - I love this name when used on a fictional, earthy / earth-based institution, but maybe not so much (though I'll still accept it) when used on a person.

Nonetheless, Latin was *not*, I repeat, NOT created for any educated elite, male or not. If you check up its history, you'll find that it was descended from this ancient language called Proto-Indo-European. Let's not forget that Latin is the ancestor of many of our beautiful Romance languages of today, not to mention the source of many an English word we speak today.

American singer Terra Naomi. She sang 'Possible' and 'Never Quite Discussed', as well as many others.

This is my name. I have always loved it and the spelling. I like that I have not had to correct people on the pronunciation nearly as often as friends with the spelling Tara.

"Terra" is the name of one of the main characters in the PSP game "Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep".
-- Milena Scialfa  1/3/2011
I very much like this name, though I'm not quite sure why. Perhaps it's because of the additional Latin meaning, or because it's not very popular.
-- Black_X  6/29/2011
I've known one person though she spells it with one R. I prefer this spelling because it has mythological and fantasy ties. She has been called Terror a bit in good fun because she's so boisterous and she actually likes the nickname.

If you like Tara pronounced teh-ra then definitely go for this spelling because no one will pronounce it correctly otherwise. I have known many many Tara's and not one has pronounced it the same as Tera/Terra most are Tar-uhs. I always figured the names were like Anna and Anya obviously connected but pronounced differently.

I do love this name. Terra. It just takes me to my garden on a spring day running my hands through warm dirt, and squishing my toes into the soft soil. I see earth in the name. And I love the way it's pronounced. It's balanced out perfectly to me. I'm not really a fan of the completely different name Tara. It's pronounced differently, and the way it looks written/ printed out is odd to me.
