    Mazarra / Мазарра

    My friend told me that my name is Russian, because "Mazarra" is a street or city in Russia.

    I don't know if this is true but I don't know the origin of my name so I'm not sure.

    Is my name Russian?

    I couldn't find anything Russia-related with Mazarra.

    In Russian it would be: Мазара or Мазарра, but as I said nothing can be found...

    Are you sure it isn't middle eastern?

    Well I found out it could also be from Iraq... But I don't think it sounds it!

    In Russian there is adopted word - "мазар".

    Мазар (араб. – место поклонения), у мусульман культовое сооружение над гробницами святых.
    Mazar (Arabic - place of theolatry) Moslem spiritual construction over the sepulchres of the saints.
