Claire has a crisp, sweet and clear sound. Today it is a top girls' name in the US and still rising in popularity. It’s also a saint’s name for Saint Clare, who in 1958 was designated the patron saint of TV by Pope Pius XII for her ability to see and hear the service on the wall of her room when she was too ill to attend Mass. On modern TV, the name Claire is well represented by elegant Claire Underwood on "House of Cards," single mother Claire Littleton on "Lost" and the powerful Claire Bennet on "Heroes."
