    I pronounce it the way I believe most Americans do, at least in my experience: clar-(as in "air")UH. I'm on the Pacific West-Coast if you want to get specific on regional accents. Not really sure how you're pronouncing it, but if it sounds like Harris it has that "air" sound to me? Are you wanting the British "are" sound? Clar(as in "are")-UH? BTW, I have no idea if that's really the way Brits say it, just going by the way they say it on Doctor Who, which is with the "are" sound. Both are very pretty.

    Clara is such a sweet name, I love it. All of your names are very sweet and feminine in an understated way. Great names. Have fun choosing the one!

    I pronounce it somewhere between Claire-uh and Clah-ruh (how you pronounce it.) I can definitely see pronunciation issues arising, but don't let that stop you if you really love it. I like Anna and Vera best from your list, though.
