I’m thinking of naming my home decor store in the US “Marmara,” but without the accent because it’s being read by English speakers. As a noun, do I need to say marmarO or can I use marmarA which I think sounds prettier in English? Does it make sense to call my store Marmara ?

"μάρμαρο" (marmaro) = marble (singular)

"μάρμαρα" (marmara) = marbles (plural)

Both forms of the word seem suitable for a name.  Actually "Marmara" is a name already used for the Sea of Marmara (Θάλασσα του Μαρμαρά).
