Is Tamar an outdated name in israel ? ( in Anglo charedi / ramat bet shemesh style ... a little more open than average chairedi circles) how about Devora? I'm thinking about a name to add along to Devora which we need to use to name after a dear relative . But I'm concerned that Devora isn't the most modern name so we add a different related and call the child by the added name . Would Tamar help for this purpose , or is it also outdated?

It’s only been in the top 5 girls names every year recently. Both of my gan girls have 3 in their classes. DD5 is Tamar! It’s common now when it’s opinion the parasha.

rav Shteinman's wife was Tamar.

It's a classic.

It would be cool put together with Devorah, cos it sounds like Tomer Devorah (from Shoftim). Was that why you chose it?

Tamar is a classic on every circle, you can’t go wrong with that name. Tamar Devora is beautiful. Reminiscent of Tomer Devora.
🤦‍♀️ Should have read previous responses before I posted.

Any Tanachi name is totally fine and not dated. I have seen some girls called Debbie here. I think that those are both strong names that I personally wouldn’t put together. But Devorah Tamar has a nice sound, but is a mouthful.

I actually knew a Tamar Devorah during my college years. Anyway I would have to echo the masses that they are both classic names and I know quite a few friends who have given birth in recent years that named Tamar.

I know a Tamar and a Devora (called Debbie) who are both around 7-8 years old. I also know adult Devoras and Tamars. I think they're both fine.
