Meaning & History
This name was used by Shakespeare for the evil queen of the Goths in his tragedy 'Titus Andronicus' (1593). Shakespeare's source for the play is unknown, but he may have based the name on TOMYRIS or TAMAR. A known bearer is American fantasy writer Tamora Pierce (1954-), in whose case it originated as a misspelling of TAMARA.
