This name derives from the Imperial Latin word "clàrus", meaning “clear, bright, famous, illustrious one”.

She founded the Order of Poor Ladies, a monastic religious order for women in the Franciscan tradition, and wrote their “Rule of Life”, the first monastic rule known to have been written by a woman. Following her death, the order she founded was renamed in her honor as the Order of Saint Clare, commonly referred to today as the Poor Clares. 2) Saint Clare of Montefalco (Italian: Chiara da Montefalco) (~1268–1308) was an Augustinian nun and abbess. Before becoming a nun, St. Clare was a member of the Third Order of St. Francis (Secular). She was canonized by Pope Leo XIII on December 8, 1881.
