Name Meaning

English (southeastern England, of Norman origin): from Clere, the French popular form of the personal name Clare 2, and possibly interchangeable with it or confused with it.

English (southeastern): probably a habitational name from clere, a component of several placenames in north Hampshire (Highclere, Burghclere, Kingsclere). This is probably from a Celtic stream name meaning ‘bright’ (cognate with Latin clarus ‘clear, bright’).

Americanized form (translation into English) of German Klar 1.
