I see both Clare and Claire as a buff/fawn colour because that's the colour of C for me.
I like Clare for its traditional English vibe but think Claire looks prettier. So Claire wins by a whisker, especially were I to use a French mn such as Isabelle or Mireille or Marguerite.
But I see the merit in Clare, especially teamed with with a traditional English name like Eleanor or Isabel or Margaret.
re Clara - a variety of tulip bulb is called "Dame Clara Butt" (after a British singer) pronounced clair-uh by mum, so that's how I say Clara. I quite like that pronunciation, but there seem to be so many competing pronunciations that I'm too confused to use Clara.
