Meaning & Origins

Russian: probably derived from the Hebrew name Tamar, from a vocabulary word meaning ‘date palm’, with the addition of the feminine suffix -a. The name Tamar is borne in the Bible by two female characters: the daughter-in-law of Judah, who is involved in a somewhat seamy story of sexual intrigue (Genesis 38), and a daughter of King David (2 Samuel 13), the full sister of Absalom, who is raped by her half-brother Amnon, for which Absalom kills him. It is rather surprising, therefore, that it should have given rise to such a popular given name. However, Absalom himself later has a daughter named Tamar, who is referred to as ‘a woman of a fair countenance’ (2 Samuel 14:27), and the name may derive its popularity from this reference. The name is now also used in the English-speaking world.

English: habitational name from Whaley in Derbyshire, Whalley in Lancashire, or Whaley Bridge in Derbyshire (formerly in Cheshire). The first is probably named with Old English wælla ‘spring’, ‘stream’ + lēah ‘(woodland) clearing’. The second has as the first element Old English hwæl ‘round hill’, and the last has Old English weg ‘path’, ‘road’ as the first element, the second element in both cases also being lēah.
