I love this name, but spelled "Chiara" (Italian origin). However, all of my friends think It'sounds like an ethnic name. Does anybody have an opinion on this?

In the past, Kiara was not as common a name as after 2018. But in 2018 it became much more common, due to the fact that in Brother Bear 2, the direct-to-video sequel of Walt Disney Classic Brother Bear, the brown bear protagonist, Kiara, the brown bear cub who is Nita and Kenai's headstrong young daughter and Koda's strong-willed little sister, has that name! In Brother Bear 2, Kenai's daughter's name is pronounced "Kee-AHR-ah." (But when'they play together, Koda pronounces his sister's name "KEE-rah" in a loving way, but Kiara does not mind!
