A variant of the celestial deity Chandra, Chandara is a feminine name of Sanskrit and Hindi origins, meaning “moon shining.” Referring to the Hindu god of the moon, Chandra is at the helm of night and vegetation and is one of the nine Navagraha—or planets—that influences human life. A name that evokes an ethereal glow but sports a unique spelling makes Chandara a possible favorite for parents who wish to honor the celestial being. Steeped in illuminating symbolism, baby Chandara is set to be a guiding light through the darkest of nights.
