I keep seeing it suggested on threads, and was wondering of it's particularly fashionable atm...

I haven't come across any very young Cara's. I know of two in their 20's but that's it.

I know an 8 year old Kara and 10 year old Cara.

I know of two Cara's, aged about 12

Yes sad I named DD that (10 months old) and since then 2 newer babies in my direct acquaintance, plus someone my Mum works with's niece, someone DH works with's daughter. I am sad it will probably be top 20 or higher over the next couple years as I didn't want a name to date her like mine does. I blame that stupid model that is all over the tabloids.

I know a 3yo named Cara, but htat is only one I know.

I only know people in their 30s called Cara. It's a pretty sound so I'm not surprised it's popular.

Just had a quick look at the last statistics released, only 228 Caras born in 2011.

I don't know any! That was no. 1 name on our list for dd 10 years ago. But when she was born she didn't look like a Cara sad

It may become popular as Cara Delevingne is everywhere at the moment.

I know one 2 year old called Cara (in the North East)

I know one in her 30s and one who just turned 1 I think. I quite like the name but wouldn't use it as the one who's in her 30s is a bitch smile

I don't know any baby Cara's but I know an 18 yr old Cara and a 14 yr old Caragh. Both lovely girls.

I think the name is beautiful.

DD is one but apart from her I've only met two.

I know of one baby cara. Think cara and Clara on the rise. Both gorgeous imo.

I love the name but its really gaining momentum in the South East!

I know a 30 year old Cara and a 16 year old. Both very nice smile

I don't know any. Was on my short list but I had two DS!

I very nearly called my DD Cara, but at the last minute went for a different name. After she was born I met 2 babies called Cara, both born within a couple of months of her. Other than that I know 1 Cara and 1 Kara, who are both in their early 30's. I think it's a pretty name with a nice meaning, and it's still on my baby name list. smile

My 18 month old DD is Cara.

I know one Kara aged 4 and one baby Clara. Only Cara I know is an adult. Love the name.
