Clara is a feminine name with Latin origins. It translates to “bright” and “famous”, which can promise a dazzling future for baby. This name has a distinct vintage chic that sets it apart from its counterparts like Claire and Clarissa. Clara has lived up to its famous translations through the legacy of silent screen legend and original “It Girl” Clara Bow, who defined cinema in the 1920s. Doctor Who fans might also recognize the name as belonging to Clara Oswald, the plucky companion to the Eleventh and Twelveth doctor.
