I think Almira is quite beautiful, and definitely a name you don't see everyday. However, I could've sworn that Almira had Arabic roots as well. Then again, "baby names" sites aren't well known for accuracy--which is why we have Behind the Name! :-)

Also used in Brazil, where I was born. But there it's regarded as an elderly, country name, pretty much like Mary Lou or Jerry Lee :P.
