[Opinions] Yaara, Yara and Iara
Do you like these names? Yaara is Hebrew and I love the meaning. Iara is a water goddess and Yara an alternate spelling.Is Yaara with the two As going to work? Which one do you prefer?

I have a niece named Iara, so I'm definitely fond of it. I've encountered both Iara and Yara in Brazil, but I've never seen Yaara.

I’ve come across Yara before (with a different origin) and quite like it. I would probably stick with one A, because I think two would cause some confusion where I live, but it might work fine elsewhere. It’s a very pretty but more unusual name.

I prefer Yara out of these. Yaara doesn't look as good as Yaara to me, and I'm tempted to say Iara as EE-ah-rah.

Yaara and Yara are nice, but the two as look weird. Still, I like Yaara more and it actually looks like a Finnish name, for whatever reason.

Hi Perrine !!!I did not know the Tupi name.Anyway I prefer using Yara for the Hebrew meaning and Iara for the Tupi nane.Yara is so rare that the only link I have is a horrible murder occured few years ago. I guess that every Italian think the same.

Yes, I like them. I'd pick Yara because it's more streamlined. Yaara would work fine, too, though it looks a bit more exotic to me....or, I'd pick Yaara if I specifically wanted a flower name but Yara if I wanted a name with a water association.
