Chiara

If you’re looking for a fabulous foreign name that’s not over used in the States, Chiara—which means “bright,” “light,” and “famous”— is a good fit. It’s a pretty, Italian variation of Clara and is a good, easy-to-pronounce alternative to Claire and Keira. Popular in Italy, Germany, Austria and Switzerland,  it has a sophisticated, European air.
