My favorite middle name for Clara is Clara Dawn. Typically, one-syllable middle names sound the best with a first name of two syllables.

What’s more, “Dawn” means “the first appearance of light at daybreak.” Therefore, this middle name definition blends with the “bright, blear” meaning of the first name “Clara.”

Combine “Clara” and “Dawn” together, and you get the meaning of “bright, clear light at daybreak.”

Meaning of the name Clara

If you know the meaning of your baby’s first name, it helps you choose a middle name that complements it.

Clara means “bright, famous or clear” according to Behind the Name.

It originates from the Latin Clarus and made popular by Saint Clare of Assisi in the 13th Century.

Silent film actress born in 1905 also known as The It Girl went by the name of “Clara.” Her middle name was Gordon.

More recently, you might be familiar with Fast and Furious 6 actress and mode Clara Elizabeth Iris Paget.
