Likes to party, even if it means some regretful moments. Always up for an adventure, and never turns down a dare. Very outgoing and smart. Is a very athletic person. A pretty girl. Perfection flawless and beautiful!

It means "beloved" in Latin and "dear" in Italian. I'm not sure, but I think all translations are along those lines.
It can be spelled Kara or Cara - All it comes down to is whether your parents like K or C better. Personally, my name is Kara and it's pronounced ka-ruh (the first "a" is pronounced like the "a" in "at".)

Kara is an unusual spelling of the name Cara. This name began to be used in the early 20th century. It can be found in several European countries, mainly those with Latin-based languages. It is almost certainly derived from the Italian feminine term of endearment cara, which means "dear" or "beloved." (The masculine form is caro, but I don't think this is used as a boy's name - certainly not in English.) By an odd coincidence, Cara has the same meaning as the more widespread girl's name, Amy - this derives from the French word for beloved.

The popularity of Cara as a girl's name in English was probably helped by the fact that there is also an Irish Gaelic word cara, which means "friend." Celtic names, and new names based on old Celtic words, grew very popular all over the English-speaking world in the 20th century.

Kara is the name of a Nordic Valkyrie.
In Norse mythology, a valkyrie (from Old Norse valkyrja "chooser of the slain") is one of a host of female figures who decide who will die in battle. The valkyries bring their chosen to the afterlife hall of the slain, Valhalla.
Specifically in terms of nordic meaning, Kara means wild and untamable.

LOL @ people saying "no its Cara" So you know how we spell our names now? It can be either or because not everyone is the same, there is more than one correct spelling, and I prefer it with a K. My name however is pronounced Carruh not Care-uh, and to those saying "its not this way its that way" calm down, and stop telling us how our names should be...

My name is Kara also and I just want to say that it means empty in Japanese which is where Karate comes from. In Karate you fight empty handed. My parents actually didn't give me my name because of its meaning but because it sounds pretty which is one of the reasons I love my name. I actually thought that the name Kara was uncommon and usually spelled Cara but it turns out to be the other way around.
