Comments Pronounced "KLAR-ANCE!" And, it was used in Roman Times in latin literature FIRST! It is latin but means bright, clever, or smart! Later Anglo Saxons also used the name but it is pedistrian scholorship and translation that brought the Dark Ages people to corrupt the meaning. CLARENCE DARROW was named Clarence because he was BRIGHT! He was not royality and was brought up in the U.S. and in an increasingly anti-royal era.
