Chiara is my name, and I grow to like it. When I was a little girl I used to dislike it, but now at 30 I simply adore it. It's strong and feminine at the same time, simple and elegant. It's pronounced "KEE-ARA" and not "Chee-era" or "Ky-ara" like most English speaking people do. Unfortunately, in Italy it has become a very common name. Still, I like it.

This name is so pretty. I don't like seeing it Anglicised, but it's understandable since the original spelling is so easy to mispronounce.

Chiara is a pretty name. It's my name and it is annoying of people saying it wrong, but that just shows that it's unique. It is pronounced kee-era. Kiara is how it sounds but it is spelled differently. Im in middle school so I hear it said wrong all the time. I hear Ciara, Chi-ara and kee-ara, but after a while you get used to it. When someone calls Ciara or any of the other names I know that they're calling me.

I love the name Chiara. It's a popular Italian name. I can't stand Kiara/Keeara etc, though. It's NOT pronounced like Kierra as someone here wrote. It's kee-AH-ra.

In Italy Chiara was not much common in the past, today it has become overused: it was the 7th most popular name in Rome in 1981, 1986 and 1991, the 4th in 1994 (behind Giulia, Francesca and Federica); the 3rd in all Italy in 2004 (behind Giulia and Martina) and the 5th in 2006 (behind Giulia, Sara, Sofia and Martina).

My name is Chira and it's pronounced Cheera like in chamber. It's Kurdish and it means light just like Chiara. Almost same spelling, different pronunciation, but same meaning.

I have an Italian friend named Chiara and she pronounces the "r" as a "t": Kee-A-tah.

A very popular name for babies in Italy, Chiara is very rare in the United States, probably because its likely to be mispronounced. Nevertheless, 111 baby girls born in the US in 2012 were given the name Chiara.
