I see you've understand perfectly the first part, but may be I wasn't clear enough in the rest. Of course, Chiara is still used as a name in many languages: Clara (Spanish), Clare (English), Claire (French), Klara (German).. and Chiara (Italian). Curiosly, there is no male form to this name (never heard of a boy named "Claro or Chiaro").
The origin of the name is the latin "clarus", applied originally to voice and sounds (compare "de-clare, de-clara-tion"). Then, the name had the mean of "brilliant, illustrious". Thanks for writing.
