Naomi returns to Israel and tells people to call her Mara cause God has embittered her life (Ruth 1:20). But no one actually ends up calling her Mara.
- Is a person allowed to change her name for non-health (refuah) related reasons?
- Does anyone else in Tanach ever do this i.e. as to have his or her name changed?
- Why doesn't anyone actually call her Mara?
