Dara is also a Thai and Lao unisex given name, meaning "star", ultimately derived from Sanskrit तारा (tārā). So, I think that the "Usage" of this name should be updated to read, "Khmer, Thai, Lao"; and the "Meaning & History" section of this name should be updated to read, "Means 'star' in Khmer, Thai, and Lao, ultimately from Sanskrit तारा (tārā)."

Scripts: ดารา (Thai), ດາຣາ (Lao)

I like it as a feminine name. I know a girl named Dara whose full name is Oluwadara and it’s a cute nickname.
Sounds feminine to me. Anyways, pretty name.
Dara is a wonderful name for a girl. Dara is so feminine, and I've only met women named Dara.
I don't get why this name is unisex. It sounds feminine and I've only known girls with this name.
Sandara "Dara" Park is a South Korean singer and member of former girl group 2NE1.

I love how this name has so many meanings in different languages, "oak-tree, star, gift, wisdom, compassion" it makes it seem very universal and international.
