US Popularity:19404
Other Origin(s):German, Irish, Italian, Norse, Turkish
Meaning:Beloved; friend; loved; dear
A gender-neutral name made for an affectionate soul, Kary, at its heart, means "friend." A variant of Cara, Kary is a universally appealing appellation, enjoying Irish, German, and even Italian origins. All stem from the Latin word cārus, whose meaning encompasses "beloved," "dear," and "loved one." Yet Kary is not without complexity. Its potential ties to the Turkish Kara reveal the meaning "dark" while the Norse Kára offers the definition "the wild, stormy one"—from the Old Norse afkárr. Let it be said that Kary's strength is not that they are loved but that their various shades are worthy of love—a beautiful lesson for all to hold dear.
