Clear Name Meaning
English: probably a habitational name from clere, a component of several place names in north Hampshire (Highclere, Burghclere, Kingsclere). This is of uncertain origin, probably from a Celtic stream name meaning ‘bright’ (cognate with Latin clarus ‘clear’, ‘bright’). English and Irish: variant of Clare. Translation of German Klar 1.
