I love the name Clara but have a sister called Clare. Would it be weird to use Clara? They obviously look very alike but don't actually sound that similar. Opinions please.

I don't think think it would be weird.

Clara and Claire for siblings would be a bit weird, but not weird for Aunt and Niece.

I don't think it's weird at all. Clara is a beautiful name smile

It's fine.

Gosh I love Clara. I never associate it with Clare.

I think it's fine for Aunty and niece. Lovely name!

I'm a Clare and have an aunt called Claire but I wasn't named after her and nobody has ever questioned it so if you like it go for it X

It's fine.

It's fine- I have a Lara with an auntie Laura and nobody's really commented.
