Imagery for Indira & Inara?

I posted a poll in the Girls Names form, but hoping to get a little feedback on what people “see” when they think of [name_f]Indira[/name_f] or Inara. I’m trying to decide between the two.

[name_f]Indira[/name_f] - well I know a woman named this and I had never heard of the name before her, so I immediately associate the name with her. However, she is kind, intelligent, independent, college-educated (masters degree), bilingual which are all positive traits.

Inara - I’m not sure how you are pronouncing it. My instinct tells me to pronounce it ih-nar-ah rather than ih-nair-ah (sorry I’m bad with spelling out pronunciations). I imagine someone who is very open minded and creative. Someone who is interested in many different things and can’t be stereotyped into a certain category. Also sweet but strong.

Personally, I like Inara better. :slight_smile:
