User comments for Clara (Pronunciation Only)

I've never heard an American say "Clara", so maybe they rhyme it with Sarah. But I've heard plenty of English (UK) people say it, plus many radio announcers introducing or referring to Dame Clara Butt, and they've all used the Continental pronunciation (ah, not air) with one exception: the parents of a child who must be in her twenties now but was a toddler when I met her parents; they explained that they had been unable to choose between Sarah and Clare when she was born, so they merged them. And this caused genuine surprise. A lot can change in twenty years, of course. I'd be interested to know!

My cousin is called Clara, and she says it like klaruh, I prefer it like that to klareuh or however they say it.

I love the Clair-Uh pronunciation. Cla-Rah sounds harsh and weird to me.

Clara Oswald is amazing but it should be pronounced K-lar-ruh.
