I appreciate all the help pronouncing the Italian female name Chiara. I was in a library today though and looked it up to verify the meaning (which is given on this site and in a name book I have as "light"). Several different Italian dictionaries listed "chiaro" (ending in an "o") as meaning "light" or "pale", and one listed "chiara" as meaning "egg white"! Does anyone speak Italian and know for sure that "chiara" can mean "light", or know what it does mean? And if it means "light", is that "light" as in sunlight or illumination, or "light" as in a light, pale color? Thanks.
