Comments by Clara


Clara (21 years old) 2012-09-02
My parents chose this name because: It is the name of a clairvoyant girl in Isabel Allende's novel "House of the spirits" (my middle name is Isabel), which was my mother's favourite book at the time. My father is Italian/French/Spanish, so it was important to choose a name that would work in France, where he lives. I used to dislike it quite a lot because I thought it wasn't special or amazing enough, but now I think it suits me perfectly.
