There is a writing error in the first sentence of this entry: the word 'means' is used twice - and one of them is capitalised (which it shouldn't be). [noted -ed]

Akin to the pronunciation guide, this name is pronounced DAH-rə. (Sometimes it's DAH-ra if you speak with an Irish accent.)

In Gaelic, "Dara" is the word for "second" (as in "after the first"; not time seconds). Second child heh-heh. Dara, as a name, is derived from "doire", which means oak wood or grove (the Gaelic word for oak is "dair"). Oaks are sacred trees in Celtic mythology, and appear in many legends. In fact, the word for a Celtic priest, druid, comes from the Celtic word for oak. The surname Mac Dara is a form of Mac Dubhdara which means "son of black oak". Doire is also the name of a city and county in Northern Ireland. It's English name is Derry (or Londonderry, if you prefer :p), but Dara is a much prettier anglicisation.

I think the name is beautiful. As a female bearer of the name myself, I think it is quite different and interesting!

This name is also used in Ireland in the form of MacDara (literally translated means son of Dara). Even if a person's father goes by a different name it can still be used.
