Karma Elizabeth: Kara is my sister's name. It is pronounced Kare-Uh not Car-uh. Most people pronounce it incorrectly. My mother read her name in a magazine about 20 years ago and thought it was pretty and named her that. I think it is a wonderful name and it always reminds me of this little girl with really blonde hair and big blue eyes.

In Sanskrit, karma means "action; deed" and refers to one's actions in the cycle of life and rebirth. A person's deeds in one life affects what they will be reincarnated as in the next. As a name it was first used in the USA in the 1960s.
