    Chiara is an Italian name that means “bright” or “clear”. Zara means “seed” (in Hebrew form) and in Arabic form, means “flower” or “star”. If you have a bunch of people around you who are used to names like Michael and Sarah and the like, your baby might have a hard time with either name. I prefer Chiara, personally.

    I have a unique name and I love it. It wasn’t as fun in elementary school but as I got older and saw the number of my friends who needed added clues about which version of [insert common name] they were, I appreciated my name more.

    ETA- it looks like it’s either Catherine and Chiara or Catherine and Zara. I think Catherine and Chiara flow well with the alliteration of the two hard C pronunciations. Catherine also means “pure” or “clear” so that’s cool.

    zombeee :  Catherine and Zara remind me of British royalty names so my mind puts them together. Also, fun fact, Kiara is Simba’s daughter in the Lion King 2 Simba’s Pride. Also spelled Kiara…I’ve secretly liked it since then.   

    Would you ever call Catherine Kate or any other nickname?

    zombeee :  In that case, if you’re going to go with that name, I’d definitely spell it KIARA. Chiara is just asking for trouble. However I still like Zara better.

    Idk what your other name is but I really like Zara and Kira together. I think they go together without being super matchy and Kira is really similar to Kiara. I like Kiara but hate Chiara sorry

    I know a woman named Chiara.  She is one of the hike leaders in a group I am in. On the fb group, I always read her name as Chi (as in Tai Chi) ara.  After I met her, I learned it was Key-ara.  But I still say Chi-ara every time i see it.

    I like the name Zara, considered it for my daughter.  We went with a different name as we named her after my husband’s father.

    Keep in mind that if you choose Chiara, every teacher and new person your daughter meets will call her CHI-ARA. Same for all awards ceremonies, at her graduation ceremony, etc.  Chi, like the hair brand. Or think, Chia, like the pots shaped like famous people that grow grass for hair.

    zombeee :  Apologies! I didn’t know it was a known Italian name! 🙂

    I still think Zara would be an easier name to have though. Good luck!
