Other Origin(s):American, Norse
Meaning:Beloved; Friend; Wild stormy one
Above all things, being and having a beloved friend is key to a happy life! That's what makes Karah such a wonderful choice for your baby girl. It stems from the Irish word cara, meaning "friend." In the Irish language, an anam cara is a soul friend, or soul mate, pointing to the strong bond you'll form with baby and the everlasting friendships she'll forge in life. Karah is also a modern Americanized version of Kara, a valkyrie from Norse mythology who served the god Odin. In this context, Kara means "wild, stormy one," which we think highlights baby's strength of character. A loyal friend with a strong mind... that's certainly someone to celebrate!
