This is my first name and I love it, it reminds me of an intellectual woman which I really consider myself to be! Also I prefer this version over Clara because is more exclusively Italian.
Also French.
Beautiful, especially when said in an Italian accent :)
So so cute! Wow I love it I think.
I actually think it looks like it would be pronounced Shee-air-eh.
Chiara Lüssow is a German actress.
It sounds like my name and better than the Irish name Ciara.
My mom is Italian and my whole family pronounces the 'r' more like a 'd'. So not Chi-ar-a but Chi-a-da (the Chi sounds like "key"). But when I'm at school or I meet new people they usually pronounce it as Chi-ar-a and to be honest, that's okay with me. I mean it kind of sounds weird when I hear people not related to me call me Chi-a-da. But anyways my point is it doesn't really matter how it is pronounced because you're still the same bright, clear person your name says you are. But of course tell your preference to people because that matters too :) Shine on, all the Chiaras in the world!
It's pronounced KYAH-ra in Italian, not kee-AH-ra. The Chia-part is one syllable only.
I once knew a Chiara in math class and she pronounced it "Kee-ARE-ah".
Chiara Conti (1973-) is an Italian actress.
Chiara... A beautiful elegant name.
In Italy this name is usually pronounced as two syllables: KYAR-ah, not Kee-AH-rah.
Also Sicilian:
Chiara is an Italian female text to speech voice I like. She is my favorite.
Lovely name. Definitely better than Claire/Clair and Kiara. I also think this name would make a nice sibling set with Elio.
This is an awesome name! Everyone ignores it so much but it’s such an elegant ITALIAN name that is way too ignored. All Chiaras: be lucky you have such a great name!
Chiara (real name Chiara Siracusa) is a Maltese singer who represented her country in 1998, 2005, and 2009 Eurovision with the songs "The One That I Love" (1998), "Angel" (2005), and "What If We" (2009). She has been in the final all three times, but did not crack the Top 10 once in 2009.
Chiara Iezzi of Paola e Chiara. Her & her sister are excellent singers.
The "Namesake" section is missing Blessed Chiara Badano (October 29, 1971 - October 7, 1990), a young Italian girl and member of the popular Focolare Movement who was diagnosed with a painful form of Osteogenetic Sarcoma before she was even 17 years old. However, the heroic virtue she showed throughout this horribly painful disease, the joyful acceptance with which she endured it, together with certain verified miracles, have led to her being raised up as an example of holiness in suffering by the Catholic Church, being bestowed the title of Blessed. [noted -ed]
My name is Chiara but I prefer "Chi-ara" as the pronunciation. It fits the look and my personality. I don't really care about the "supposed to".
Chiara Zanni is a Canadian voice actress of Italian descent. She is known for voicing the titular character in the English dub of the anime Hamtaro.
Such a lovely sounding name but an unattractive and unappealing spelling. Kiara is the spelling I would use.
Another gorgeous Italian name! Love it!
Chiara Ferragni is an Italian blogger and fashion designer.
This name is pronounced "kee-ar-ah", the second syllable being pronounced like the word "are".
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.
Chiara, the "Invisible Girl" in E.T.A. Hoffmann's The Life and Opinions of the Tomcat Murr.
I have an Italian friend named Chiara and she pronounces the "r" as a "t": Kee-A-tah.
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.
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).
Chiara Mastroianni is an actress, daughter of Catherine Deneuve and Marcello Mastroianni. She also made an album with yummy French singer Benjamin Biolay, who she was married to for a while.
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.
Pronounced kee-AR-ah or kee-Ah-ra.
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.
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 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.
It's pronounced kee-A-ra.
