    How to honor a Clara?

    What are your suggestions for honoring a Clara without actually using the name Clara or Claire? As a tip- Clara means "clear/bright." Thanks in advance!

    What about Robert for a boy? I've loved the idea of Clara/Claire as a way to honor Robert ("bright fame") from my own family--and Clara/Claire means "bright; clear; fame".

    Otherwise, maybe Lara, or another -ara name, or Cla- name? like Zara, Farrah, Mara, Sara, Tara, Dara, Cara/Kara, etc., or Clancy, Claudia (or something like Claudia Rachel?). I love the suggestion of Clarissa as well. Very sweet and romantic.

    Hmm, what about:

    Clea Arabella/Cleo Arabella

    There's not a ton of great "Cl" names, haha. Maybe Clementine Arabella? Here's a list of Cl- names (http://babynamesworld.parentsconnect...=2&i_search=cl), a list of Cla- names (http://babynamesworld.parentsconnect...la&s_filter=14), a list of "Ra" names (http://babynamesworld.parentsconnect...ra&s_filter=14), and a list of Ara- names (http://babynamesworld.parentsconnect...ra&s_filter=14). Or maybe even any "C" name with Lara as a middle? Charlotte Lara, Camille Lara, Cecily Lara, Christiana Lara, etc.?
