Personal experiences with the name Chara: | Edit

My name is Chara and although most people cant pronounce it right its a beautiful name!

EDIT - I agree with this, I am also called Chara. My full name is Charalambia which is Greek, but I have been called Chara all my life. Mine has a strange pronounciation, it is "har-ah" so the "C" is silent. (:
